“The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us.” – Terri Marshall

Another Christmas has come and nearly gone and I am sitting here with a couple of thoughts. The way I look at the holidays is much different as a parent than it was as a spouse. Watching the kids on Christmas morning is the biggest gift I get these days.

I was really lucky when I married Stacy. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. “Of course you are, we KNOW you.” Not only did I get a fabulous woman, but I got a lot of Christmas traditions that I didn’t have before. She and her mom make Christmas cookies a few weeks into December. Even though they swear I love the coconut (I ABSOLUTELY do NOT), I like the tradition. Doesn’t matter what they make, they are making memories and that’s what is important.

I had no idea that Santa had his own wrapping paper. If I happen to see a renegade roll of wrapping paper in the closet, I know better than to pull it out. “That’s Santa paper, don’t let the kids see it!”, she would say. Not saying how I know that, just trust me. Leave the paper where it lays.

Stacy and her family have experienced some awful losses during the month of December but she puts on a smile and you might never know it. Her family has made my holiday very special and I sincerely hope yours was too. Merry Christmas and wishing you the best in the coming year!
