In my entire life, I have only spent 2 Christmases away from one; my first year in phoenix, and this present Christmas. I can honestly say that it was a beautiful one. This has been a rough month for me in general. Lets of thoughts about lots of things and being away from home have made this a very uncomfortable time for me, but this week made everything wonderful. Rob and I spent our first Christmas together exactly how I imagined a perfect Christmas would be. Love, laughs, food, drinks, presents, smiles, drama, and lots of kisses. My Korean family came over for a huge (and fattening) dinner in the conference room of Global Ville and we had a wonderful time. ANDDDDDD I got a Nook from the love of my life. What a great weekend I had. Now I sit in bed playing with my new toys and hugging my Yoshi that rob got me as a stocking stuffer. SEE OUR CHRISTMAS HERE!
I've made a lot of changes in 2010 and its time to make even more in 2011. I thank God that I am still growing into a better and more humble woman everyday and that I have such a wonderful man that continues to help me grow. I think its important to take a minute to sincerely be thankful for the good AND bad things that you have in your life. Not for the sake of others, or because a holiday told you to, but to really appreciate all the little things. A kiss on the forehead, a whispered I love you, a teenage brother telling you you are the best sister in the world (and you know teens hate everything), a kissed hand, a heartfelt letter, knowing your family loves you, and the happiness that comes from the thoughts of your future with the one you love. Merry Christmas!
