I usually get a little sad around this time of year.
It could be that there are less daylight hours…
or maybe there are just high expectations for Christmas.
You know, like how family should be together…
and everyone should just get along?
Honestly, I don’t know why – maybe it’s a combination of all of the above – who knows…
This year is a bit different though.
Maybe because I’m going home for Christmas for the first time in 23 years…
maybe it’s because it’ll be the first Christmas EVER that we’ll all (my mom and dad, my brother, his wife and son, me and my daughter) be together!
Maybe that’s why I’m feeling the Christmas spirit this year.
Maybe that’s why I actually put up a tree – albeit a small one.
This is one of my favourite Christmas songs and Sugarland really does it justice.
How about you? How do you feel about the holidays?
What are your plans this year?
