I love Christmas and I consider myself a Christmas die hard. By now the upstairs would have three trees decorated and the foyer upstairs would have three wreaths and the sideboard would be decorated.
This year, I won't get to decorate upstairs. And, downstairs may not have but one tree and the family room but one tree.
Because sometimes life throws you major curve balls. That's ok, though, because I am learning that even though the house may not sparkle from head to toe with Christmas cheer, I am personally sparkling from head to toe with Christmas cheer. I am streamlining and making each decoration count. Everything that is being put out will have a personal and family connection and I am going to document those connections in a book for Ashley. Then when life throws a curve ball that ends in a strike out, she will know which items are precious, and which ones are just for fun.
This Christmas will be a time of joy and celebration as I was able to hit the curve ball and get safely to base. All my pathology reports say I am cancer free! Now, to just get past recovery from surgery, being able to use my arm and to stoop down and reach up, will be my next goals.
Enjoy the season everyone!
