Fall has come and gone, and we are now heading into to winter, and in just 3 short days I will, along with millions be celebrating the holidays with my family. I just want to take a moment and pray for the people who have hard times this year and won't be able to afford much celebrating. I remind myself that this season is NOT about buying gifts, and shopping... it's about remembering why WE are here on this earth and how our Lord was born and what the REAL meaning of the season is. It's not gifts, food, eggnog, sales, anything. Make sure that you tell everyone you love them, and do something nice for someone-- even if you struggle. It only takes a second to address a Christmas card, or pick up the phone and call someone. You'd be surprised at how much it can change someone's mood for the better!!
I still feel like life is just flying by- like I am stuck in this spot but the world is just passing right along by. Sometimes I feel myself trying to catch up but I am behind- I know I am. It's really hard to describe without sounding stupid but I just feel like I shouldn't be 22 already. I shouldn't be worrying about bills, jobs, etc already. I can't believe I wished for this! (LOL) I can't believe I told my mom I couldn't wait until I was 18 and could get out, can I just eat those words up now. What happened to field trips, sleepover's, going to Limited Too and playing with the makeup, and warm sweet milk before bed. It's just crazy! I love my life, every rough bit of it, but it's going by so fast. 2012 is at our feet! What am I gonna do with this year? Oh, there will be changes--- FOR SURE. I'm not going to list, but I am sure you will be along for the ride with me and I talk about them.
Well, it's 4am and I am rambling........ as always. UGH! Well, I will hopefully be able to post another blog soon letting you know what happened over my holiday. My hubby and I are both on vacation the week after Christmas so I should have some good time to be able post and get back on track. I will try my best to blog more regular after the holiday too. :)
Thanks for reading all, and God Bless!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Painters! ;)
