People want to feel sorry for us when they find out we "aren't doing anything" for Christmas. They assume we must be depressed or Grinch's because we have not decorated (it has been a couple years since we have).
Not so. We are perfectly happy and we have Christmas spirit inside. We just don't feel like getting out a bunch of "stuff" and then having to put that "stuff" away to get out the regular "stuff". We are extremely busy and that is one chore we have eliminated that last couple of years.
Oh, we will decorate again. Now that we have Gideon in our life we know the importance of making Christmas magical for him. Once he is old enough he will want to see decorations when he comes over to Grandma and Grandpa Rowland's house and that is just fine. Right know we just need a break.
I also received the gift of "no cancer" in regard to the biopsy I had this fall. When you have had cancer once that is an even bigger gift!
I got two books out this year, my first two. It is quite a gift to hold a book in your hand that has your name as author. The Gastien series is alive and well. I love being an indie author!
It looks like Christmas won't be white here and we both consider that a gift. It makes the Minnesota winter a but shorter.
I found out that my nephews 8 year old daughter wants to be an author. She writes things and asks her mom to send them to publishers, so I am going to turn this blog over to her tomorrow. You will be hearing from Kaylee tomorrow with some Christmas thoughts. It would be nice if she got some comments to encourage her.
So, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year or just plain old have a great life...depending on your belief. I am off to make love...to the color!
