Christmas is a great time to love on your family and to enjoy each other and to laugh. I know as I grow older, family and friends become so very important. When you are a child, you think time passes so very slowly……you can’t wait for Christmas break. As you get older those holiday breaks come even faster and disappear just as fast. This holiday was spent with friends and family and it could not have been any better. I used to love decorating and getting the house ready for the boys and the visit from Santa, but lately I have not felt that inspiration to decorate. For several years I didn’t even want to celebrate. The last couple of years have been truly amazing and I have had so much fun with my family. I love watching the little ones open their gifts, I have missed that excitement.
After hearing some not so good news today, I once again realize how short life can be. We never know when our last breath will be, and we need to take each day and make it the best we can. Dance as if no one is watching, sing in the shower as if no one is listening, love like it will be your last, and be with those that make you happy. Let your loved ones know how you feel otherwise you may never get the chance. We are only given so many beats of our heart, use those beats with passion. Don’t wait, because you think you may have the time; death is not considerate of age, it can come at any time. So for this Christmas season, I spent it with the exact people I was supposed to spend it with and will continue to let those I care about know how I feel throughout this coming New Year.
