December 23, 2008

Well, as I sit here typing, we are in Huntsville, spent the night at Kenny's mom's old house and his brother did too. We had a blast night, playing UNO until 3 in the morning..yes..3 in the morning..I am so tired this morning, but Brylee has returned from staying with Reba and she is in full force this morning. I can only imagine what tomorrow will be like. Growing up as a child, Christmas is filled with so many memories. In fact, I watched a couple from 1989 and 1992 the other night. Times have sure changed! I don't know that change is always a good or positive thing, but things happen, people change and I know that God is in full control of it all and nothing surprises Him..He is not surprised at where we are, who we are or what we have become. It snowed that year on Christmas and boy, was I excited, I had a Maw-Maw with me..who is no longer, I had cousins I no longer see, I was way skinnier than I am now, life seemed really good. things happen for whatever reason, life is not certain, and my weight is def. not a certanity..;) But, now I have a wonderful husband, beautiful daughter, new cousins were born, am truly happy and couldn't think of a thing to ask for Christmas! Could it be any better? True happiness is a beautiful thing and when we recognize it and claim it, our lives are at peace..and isn't that what the whole Christmas season is about? A birth of a Savior who came for you and me and will ultimately bring us PEACE? I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and recognize your true blessings for what they really are!
