Happy Christmas Eve

Our party went well yesterday, everyone in good spirits and we had lots of goodies to eat and our White Elephant went well even though we all kept the first gift we got and nobody swapped out. I told them we are just boring people but maybe we are just proud of what we get the first go round.
Today I work until three o'clock and then I'll go up to my parent's where we'll have finger foods and open our gifts and that will pretty much be our Christmas but what a glorious Christmas it is. A few months back I had no idea if I'd be alive and well. If it was a wake up call I needed, boy did I get that. I've had a roller coaster of a year with loss and pain and joy and gratitude. As I reflect back and try to move forward, I can't help but think there is a purpose in my life I've not seen before. I've just got to figure it out and live to the best of my ability to fulfil that purpose.
One of my customers loaned me a book called The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck and it is wonderful. Read it if you haven't already.
And so I'm off to get ready for work. Hoping all of you a safe and happy holiday filled with love and family and friends.

Today we went to the eye doctor for my DH and then took table cloths to the church and went back for Christmas Eve service. It was a beautiful day. I'm so glad you still have life to work with. That's enough for a Merry Christmas!
