I am spending the day hosting my Grandpa, parents and PBS & UB for Christmas dinner and I'm sure my first ever attempt at cooking a turkey and making stuffing from scratch will turn out beautifully. (crosses fingers) And that the turtle pumpkin pie I made tastes as good as it looks and smells... Mmmmm!
I love the holidays because of the extra time you get to spend with family and friends. Some people find happiness and fulfillment through their work and don't focus on their relationships. I often wonder if those people who focus on career above people will wake up one day and feel utterly lost and alone. I hope that that they have people who care and will be there for them when the brutal business world isn't. Personally, I think the relationships you have can reward you in ways a job never could.
My family and friends bring joy to my life and mean more to me than anything. This year, they have shown me they will be there for me when I am at my worst and have helped me forget my sorrows even if only for a few moments. I am so thankful that each of you are in my life. I truly hope every one of you feels as blessed as I do this year!
Have a very Merry Christmas and remember to give your friends and family an extra hug or two!
