Christmas Day is 5 days away...where did December go? This time of year always brings such a wide swing of emotions for me. I think about all my grandparents who are in Heaven now (yes, all 4). I think about friends and family who are spending their 1st Christmas without someone very special to them. I think about the look on my kids' faces when they come out Christmas morning and see all the presents (especially the Jeep parked in the backyard - thanks, Aunt Christie!) I think about how thankful I am to have the husband, children, home, church, family, and friends that I have....and then I eat chocolate.
