It has finally arrived!!
Since Boxing Day last year, the countdown has come full circle. Here is the most treasured day for children, and the parents who make it possible.
There is something funny about looking around on facebook with the kids I grew up in school, and seeing them all have their own children, and acting as the parents to the generation of kids that replaced ours. How swiftly that time has passed...
It really was only yesterday that I was growing up and sharing my Christmas's with families and friends that are either passed away, or have moved away. And now, I am left to play the roles that were once so well played by my loved ones, to make certain every Christmas was special to that little child in all of us.
I can't compete with such over-the-top love that I was given. I'm just not as capable as my grandparents, parents, uncles and aunts were to me. Truly, I was lucky to have grown up with them in my life. Such a selfless life they lead so that this boy could enjoy the magic of Christmas that they hadn't experienced in theirs.
What a wonderful life it's been!! It hasn't been easy, but then again, what easy thing do you really appreciate? It's been a fantastic run so far. -It's about to get even better now that I have a 1 year old. The roles may change, but the mission remains the same. Strive to be better than the generation before you, and always love with an open heart.
Merry Christmas to All,
