Christmas came and went. It always comes so fast. The kids had a blast as did I. We had a theme this year. Family Fun!
Each present consisted of good ol' fashioned fun. Monopoly, Jenga, Boggle, Uno spin it, and regular playing cards. We played all of them. It has been so much fun. Lots of smiles and laughing till our sides hurt.
The boys got Leggos and Bionicles. The also got PJ's and underwear. I got a camera and a foot massager. Our house was decorated to the hilt and Santa did come and eat all of his goodies. Matthew and Timothy checked that out first thing. Every year I think they aren't going to believe and every year they prove me wrong. I'm glad they prove me wrong.
My health is good. I am a bit weak but I think I need more exercise. I go today to pick up my prescription for my new dosage of Topomax. They are upping my dosage again. I hope it helps this time. I just go with the flow.
I hope for this year that the Christmas spirit stays with everyone all year long. I don't want it to go away after the season ends. This year is going to be rough on everyone and we need to stick together and make it through in order to survive. I know that there's more to life than material things. Life, Love, Laughter.....This is worth fighting for. Morning smiles and cuddles. Sunrises and Sunsets. Children laughing running and playing. Families enjoying themselves. This is what God wanted for us. Not mean vindictive people who can walk past a hungry sick child and not think twice about it. Or send your child off to their room to play video games because they are "bothering you" or you are "too busy" for them. Family and true friends are what are going to help make it through this new depression.
My grandma is still alive today. She is a fighter and knows how to survive. She knows how to pinch pennies and she knows how to cope with the pain of losing a daughter to the same cancer she survived. She knows how precious life is and knows Gods will.
Life is worth so much more than what people are giving it credit for. It's worth so much more than what I have given it credit for in the past.
I am so thankful for my family and friends. For the love and laughter. For the smiles and hugs and the wonderful family Christmas. My life is good.
