Can you believe it’s Christmas Day? (And can you believe it’s 80 degrees in Louisiana?) Christmas can mean a lot of different things to different people – a time to celebrate, a time for giving, a time to spend with friends and family. And besides the obvious reason to exchange and open gifts, it’s a reason to GIVE to the people that mean the most to you.
It can get easy to forget the real reason for the holiday and get lost in the pretty, shiny things that we want and wish for. It can get easy to caught up stressing about buying the perfect presents when in fact, the perfect presents are things that we already have been given throughout the year. Christmas is actually about celebrating how we have already received the very best gift of all with Jesus’ birth. So this year, I started thinking about all the ‘gifts’ I’ve received that might be easily overlooked or lost in the mix of everyday life.
It was easy for me to see that one of the very best gifts I have received this year has been all of your support and friendship. With every pageview of this blog and every Instagram like, you have given me endless amount of happiness in knowing that I can connect with each one of you in a way I would never be able to. (Some of you guys have even become friends along the way too!) So this Christmas, I am wishing you guys all the peace, love and joy that you have given to me this year. I hope your Christmas is filled with laughter and smiles and spend with the ones you love most!
And to me, you guys mean the world. Lots of love to you and yours!
