A Skiff Of Snow

It snowed during the night,

just a skiff mind you, but enough to put me in the holiday spirit. I put on some christmas music,and put the finishing touches on my home. It is easy to stay home,bundled up on the couch on a snowy day instead, a dear friend and I went to lunch. She had just moved back from Ireland. What a treat it was to not only see her again but she helped me put up my Victorian village for me. I love crafty people who can put together a display in minutes.

This time of year can be especially hard for many. Military families are worried for their loved ones, I lost my son in 2007 from a tragic car accident, there are financial strains and maybe pressure to buy the perfect gift. I know it is hard to find time to get together with friends or family, but I hope we are making lasting memories to share for years to come. If you live in the city and are fortunate enough to walk downtown seeing the window displays or taking the family  around the neighborhoods to look at lights(one my favorite holiday traditions) or just trimming the tree with the kids, it is magical time of year. 

I have been asked over the years how I can be so positive after loosing my son. I have so many fond memories of a time not so long ago where my young family would go to the resort and spend the afternoon seeing Santa, looking at the displays picking our favorite one. Levi, my son, always knew the reason we celebrate christmas. he always wanted to hang a stocking up for baby Jesus. my husband was terminally ill from diabetes, but we made the best of the holiday.I beleive time is what you make of it. Being depressed was not going to help me, so I decided to make some memories. I have so many treasured stories yet to tell. Life is what you make it, good or bad circumstances. I still have my mom who I see everyday. I have lived a blessed life and I am ever thankful to have been a wife and mother even if for a little while.
