Bit late on the posting of this blog today – OOPS!
Well it’s hump day and it’s the last day of November! Only a few weeks until Christmas… Uh oh! Haven’t even thought about gifts for the family and friends!!! Hubby and I picked up a pretty cheap Christmas Tree (as the one we originally have is more of a centrepiece than a Christmas Tree), and I do think we will be decorating this weekend – well… As best as we can!
I am reminded daily of what this particular Christmas will mean for my family and I… It’s the first Christmas without our loved one… That really hits home for me, as it had been many years since I got to have a Christmas with them, and I will never get to… Ever… All I have to keep thinking is they will be there, as they are everyday, watching over us, smiling, celebrating… That will keep me at peace and I hope that does for my family too.
When it comes to family, if there is anything that I have learned this year, it would be that don’t ever let a petty thing (or petty someone) get in the way of your relationship with your family… You could end up losing more than you bargained for, and live the rest of your life with ultimate guilt… I’m glad I don’t have to feel that way… Not anymore… And if there are certain members of your family who aren’t completely blood related (either half or step siblings, etc) and they’re toxic, remove them from your life… Hell, remove any toxic person from your life!! They’re not needed!
