Christmastime is here

This has been one insanely stressful season my friends.
All because reality has hit that I'm leaving in like 3 weeks,
it's Christmastime,
and I was juggling two jobs until yesterday when school ended.

Thank goodness for good friends and family!
They were/are the only reason why I'm still excited to go to Disneyland,
why I'm still oober excited for Christmas,
and why I'm still in one piece ;)

Had a complete mental/emotional breakdown on Thursday.
Haven't had one of those in forever!
It was crazy I'll just say that,
luckily it didn't last very long
and when I got to work
(minus the puffy eyes)
I was fine and able to do my job.

Christmas always makes me happiest.
I love the lights, the trees, the smell.
(yes there is a Christmas smell-
not the horrible candle "Christmas" smell YUCK!)
I love being able to spend time with my family and with my friends.
I spent about 3 hours at my grandparents house last night
and had a blast of course!
Grandpa is doing really well,
only 2 more treatments to go!!!!!!
4 weeks and he's done! In the home stretch we are. ;)
It was so fun and nice to go over there and chat with them
(and of course get good treats since I am the granddaughter ;) ).
Christmastime is the best time of the year.
It really is,
when else in the year does family come together
and celebrate together something so special?

Christ's birth is something that changed everyone's life on this Earth.
Whether you believe it or not, He did.
He's the reason for the season and we cannot forget that.
Yes giving presents is great, 3 wise men did back in Bethlehem,
but let's not forget WHY He came here.
To save us and to love us.
I love Christmas because it also brings me closer to my Savior.
He is my best friend and confidante.
He's laughed with me, and cried and with me.
He knows me by name and knows my needs.


Remember the reason for the season.
So don't stress about the perfect gift.
Enjoy your holidays ;)

"Merry Christmas while we stand
heart to heart and hand in hand."

  1. Yay for Christmastime. I have a little nativity that says Jesus is the reason for the season on it. Haha, we are totally on the same page.
