It’s Christmas time and it’s beautiful. Don’t you love how it can’t be christmas without the tree—the sparkling lights—you could just lay under and admire each sparkling speck that you can’t ever completely focus on. Or how it can’t be christmas if you wake up and you don’t have a little avent calendar to eat each days chocolate. Or how it can’t be Christmas time if you walk outside and the cool breeze doesn’t cling to your cheeks. It can’t be christmas if you aren’t thinking about little things you can do for others to make their day a little brighter. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t wake up to a beautiful white layer of snow. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t wish to cuddle up in a blanket in front of a fireplace. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t read Christmas stories that invite in the Spirit of Christmas. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t tell all those you care about how much they mean to you. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t wish to be with those you love. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t get the opportunity to go sledding and laugh with friends. It cant be Christmas if you don’t get to rock a cute little nephew to sleep and kiss his adorably soft cheeks. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t get to sneak some of mom’s homemade caramels—that she assumes are hidden :P. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t make hot chocolate and stir it with a candy cane. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t find yourself reenacting the Christmas Story. It can’t be Christmas if the soft sounds of Christmas music aren’t playing out from the kitchen. It can’t be Christmas if your Christmas pj’s aren’t wrapped under the tree ready to open on Christmas eve. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t play a million different card games and board games. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t get to share a small house with 15 people on Christmas morning. It can’t be Christmas if there isn’t a ridiculously hard puzzle set out downstairs that you think you’ll never be able to get done, but with the help of the whole family eventually you do. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t spend a little time in line ups. It can’t be Christmas if you don’t watch some of the Christmas shows that play each night before Christmas.
I love how we forget about our worries, our fears, and our inadequacies. It’s Christmas, we care only about our loved ones and the things that are most important. Christmas time is different for every family, but I think I have listed off just some of the things that make this season important for my family and I. No matter if some of these aspects are missing just being with my family makes this Christmas time wonderful. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!! - This post idea just popped into my head while listening to Mistletoe - colbie caillet. It's great.
Ps. So when I was little and my cousin and her husband were still in high school just before Christmas they had gone and bought each other matching superman rings. They were the most amazing rings in my mind! Ever since seeing them I wanted one. I began to have this strange obsession with them. However, it has been many years since then and I never could quite get my hands on one—until today!! Yes, it's true I finally got a hold of the ring i've always wanted! Life is good.
