What’s On My Mind Monday

So this week is the last week before Christmas. I cannot believe how quickly it has arrived! What’s on my mind today? Besides the fact that I am jealous that my husband is off of work for the next two weeks? LOL Well, I’ve been asked a lot lately what I want for Christmas and I usually don’t think about me so this is a rather hard question sometimes. My mom always says the same thing, year after year to answer that question and this year I understand more than ever why she says this. Her answer to the “Mom, what do you want for Christmas?” question is simply, “I want our whole family to be together.”

This year for the first time in 15 years someone very important to me will not be with me for Christmas. I have tears rolling down my cheeks already as I write this. This has been the one thing that makes me not even want to see Christmas come this year. I’ve been trying to be brave and put up a happy face, but I cannot get past this empty spot that is filling my heart. I know it will be fun seeing LA open his gifts and enjoy the family time, but a big part of me will be absent. I know now more than ever what my mom always meant, and all I want for Christmas this year is for my whole family to be together. Family is so important and many times you don’t realize it until someone isn’t there. Take the time and love and appreciate each and every family member you see this Christmas! Every moment is special! 🙂

I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas full of blessing, smiles and family! 

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!!
