Merry Christmas

It has been extremely busy since I arrived home 2 weeks ago. I feel my family is just now settling down from the holiday hype! We enjoyed a big family Christmas at my house this year with my mom’s side of the family. I think after counting boyfriends and girlfriends, the total number was about 36 people! We had a big supper with an unbelievable spread of food and I know for a fact everyone left full! We watched movies and enjoyed one another’s company. We even had our annual “White Elephant” or “Chinese Gift Exchange” which is always entertaining. I’m so thankful we were all able to be together for this year’s Christmas.

The most meaningful thing to me this Christmas came when my grandmother was handing out envelopes to all the grandkids. She gave $10 to every grandkid and even signed her name. Now you may not think this is anything special but my grandma has Alzheimer’s and hasn’t been doing the best. Sometimes it’s hard to sit down and have the same conversation with her multiple times within five minutes, its sad. The fact that one of her daughter’s sat down with her and helped her sign every card and write a little note to each grandkid just hit me somewhere special. I’m sure it was frustrating when she messed up or couldn’t remember something, just gives me an appreciation of what I have and the people around me!

God Bless and I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
