Merry Christmas

This is my favorite/least favorite time of year. I love the Christmas season. I love everything it encompasses. The giving, the baking, friends, family, remembering the birth of our Savior, service, Christmas songs, decorating the tree, hot chocolate on cold nights and so much more.

But December 18th is still a hard day. My sweet little sis would have been seven. Crazy to think she was just three when she died.
We still miss her very much. The little girls always ask about her and the things she liked. Jacie is so much like her big sis. I just wish she could remember her.

In case you are wondering about the My Little Buttercup song before the Christmas songs here is why. The Three Amigos was her favorite movie and she would make me sing it to her (with actions) every night before bedtime. She would laugh and laugh, probably at me because I was such a dork. How I miss her. The Kenny G is on there too because her grandma would play his Christmas songs to get her to take a nap when she was at her house. Funny all the little reminders you have of loved ones.

I hope this holiday season brings everyone joy. We should all find something to be joyful about. We all have trials and problems, some are harder than others, but everyone has them. Try to find the joy in life and it will make you just a little bit happier.

My joy is still my family. I love to just sit and look at them. They bring much laughter and love to me. I want them to know how much I do love them and how much I'm glad they are mine.

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas. I know I will
Love to all
