New Traditions are taking place in our home this year.
We will not spend any time with my family back home,
as I have done every year since I was born.
BUT... We have James home, (not deployed), this year!
(That in itself is something to be Thankful for!)
I WILL NOT mind how the Christmas tree looks.
(We will decorate as a family tomorrow evening.
While we listen to Christmas songs, drink hot chocolate,
and clutter the tree, unevenly, with ornaments )
I will enjoy it...
And I will wrap packages this week...
to go along with the ones stitched onto my tree skirt.
What's important is that we are together as a family
this HOLIDAY season.
Remember the REASON for the SEASON!!
