It's almost Christmas, my most favorite time of the year.  As happy as this time might be, there are some people who don't get into the holiday spirit.  I have a friend that is such and it's a shame because she doesn't seem to appreciate all she has.  It makes me kinda sad.

For me, Christmas was always the time to reflect on my life and what I have to be thankful for (I wasn't brought up celebrating Thanksgiving).  Growing up in a Catholic family, Christmas was always a time of celebration and hope.  No matter how hard life has been that year, my parents always, always, always made sure we had a great Christmas celebration.  It's not about the presents.  It's knowing that whatever is thrown your way, you will always have your family there for you.

Hope everyone has a great Christmas this year!

(PS - that is my friend Eddie's tree.  Pretty, huh?)

"Impossible is a word only to be found in the dictionary of fools."   -Napoleon Bonaparte

I have to remind myself of this from time to time.  Have a great day folks!
