Merry Christmas Eve!
I love Christmas. I’m thankful for the love of the season, and the love of our family and friends. Even though we won’t be celebrating with anyone else this year, I’m still excited for the holiday. I’ve been dancing periodically today, and Patrick thinks I’m nuts. But that’s who I am and he knows it. He’s stuck forever.
I’m thankful I got to see a friend and exchange gifts today. She gave me some of my favorite candy and an awesome Christmas tree made from recycled wood. And she shared some home baked yummies that barely made it home to Patrick.
I also watched a Hallmark Christmas movie because it was about a shoe addict and (as you may remember) I love shoes. It ended up being an adaptation of The Christmas Carol. One line in it struck me and I wrote it down (maybe not exactly): Taking a leap of faith means you accept that you may not land where you wanted but believing you’re still better than you were before.
A great quote for the holiday and for the upcoming new year. As usual, I’m grateful for these random reminders not to be complacent in my life. I hope you take a leap of faith that moves you forward today.
