Almost there

The hustle and bustle of the year (finally) began this week. Took me a while to finally get in the mood for Christmas, I'm still not completely convinced that I am even there, but I am determined to make it special for my two sweet boys.
It's easy to get into a pity party, waaah my husband is gone, I don't want to celebrate... Although it stinks big time, there are many more Holidays to spend together.. I know it will make next year, and the year after that even more special. Truth is, Christmas isn't for MY enjoyment. I read this this morning and had to share...
"Jesus still came. Jesus still comes. In the midst of our brightest shining moments or in the midst of the darkest pain, Jesus comes. Do the carols that once brought joy to your heart bring tears to your eyes this season? Wherever Christmas finds you, Jesus still comes. And because He came, your pain is not in vain. Nor is it the end of your story."

Presents are wrapped. Car is being packed for our week up at my Parent's. Cayden is thrilled as all can about opening presents.

And Christmas will be hard no more.

You are one strong momma! I am feeling a bit less then merry this season, but have far less a reason then you.

Thank you for what your husband does-- and what you do to support him.

Merry Christmas! ...and YES! You are invited to the sledding party :)

You are very strong!! I know how bad Christmas sucks (or any Holiday) when our men aren't here. I think I spent Christmas 06 & 08 balled up in a corner crying. It's hard, but you will get through it. You have those two boys to help you! Keep your chin up!!!
