Bring on the love and the spirit of the season.
Bring on all the warm, cozy, and happy feelings.
Bring on the cinnamon candles, the blankets, and the hot chocolate.
Bring on the laughter, the full bellies, and the smiles of pure joy on my kids faces.
Bring on the traditions… And the memories that come with them.
Bring on the food. The turkey, the stuffing, the sweet potatoes, and the green beans. Bring on the gravy, the cranberry sauce, Mom’s jello salad, and the pumpkin pie.
Bring on Black Friday, the holiday shopping, and the excitement of choosing the perfect gift for someone you love.
Bring on the lights, the snow, and the jolly man in the red suit.
Bring on Thanksgiving.
Bring on Christmas.
Bring on the whole, magical Holiday Season.
So much to be thankful for. So much to love. So much to sit and simply enjoy.
Grateful for a happy and healthy family. Grateful for a thriving and fulfilling business. Grateful for a home full of love, hugs, kisses, and messes made by kids.
Grateful for a supportive and hard-working husband.
Grateful for my helpful, social, school-loving, cuddling, loves-everybody six-year old who is the perfect role model to his little brother.
Thankful for my spirited, contstruction-loving, always-wants-to-be-tickled three-year-old who adores his big brother, the color yellow, and makes me melt when he says “Ohhhh, my Mommy” and gives me a bear hug.
Thankful for our always-there-for-us extended family and Grandparents that love our kids as much as we do.
Thankful for it all.
I welcome this season with open, sweater-covered arms. With hands warmed by a hot cup of coffee. I welcome the spirit and the joy of the holiday season and the peacefulness of the falling snow outside.
I have much to be thankful for this year and every year.
Bring it all on. I’m ready.
