I wanted to finish up Thanksgiving before posting a Christmas post. It has been crazy here, and every time I went to blog, something else came up! Grrrr…. Anyway, I’ll post the last three days of November, and have a Christmas post up later on today.
Day 28- I am thankful for… family. I have mentioned specific members of my family, but I wanted to say how thankful I am for extended family: grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. I grew up with two of my cousins especially (we were tight, let me tell you!), and it’s still wonderful when I get to see them! Family isn’t just those that you’re related to by blood… It’s those you accept into your heart as family.
Day 29- I am thankful for… snow! I loooooooooove snow! I’m not fond of driving in it, but I will. Winter is without a doubt, my FAVOURITE season of the year. Fall is an extremely close second, but I love the smell of the air right before a snow storm, drinking hot cocoa after a snowball fight, smelling bread & cookies baking in the oven, watching the cardinal & juncos play in the falling snow, etc. It’s quiet, peaceful, relaxing, and calm. Who doesn’t love snow?!
Day 30- I am thankful for… the Christmas Season! It’s here! It’s finally here! Music, lights, parties, presents, decorations, snow, long lines at stores, crazy traffic, but it’s still here!!! I love this time of year, and most people hate it. I understand that most people hate it for personal reasons, but I love it because of personal reasons. It’s the time that we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ! If you haven’t read much of my blog, this is something you need to know: I am a Christian, simple as that. (Please don’t let this hinder you from reading my blog! Contact me if you have a question, and I’ll be happy to pray for you and help if I can!) The real reason behind CHRISTmas, is… well, Christ! Focus this season on the birth of Christ and what it means to you! Share it in the comments below? I’d love to hear how His coming has affected your life!
Okay, a Christmas post is next!
