Sarcasm and Whimsy

Life shouldn't be a trek to the grave with the idea of arriving safely in a nice, well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, whiskey & chocolate in hand, body used up, worn out & screaming, "WOO! WHAT A RIDE!"

Wait. Only 15 days until Christmas? December 9, 2010

Oh, how the time flies. I can’t believe it’s 15 days until Christmas already. I have MOST of my Christmas shopping left to do, cookies/candies to make and all of my Christmas cards to send. I still even have a few decorations that aren’t up yet. Probably AREN’T going to be up this year. My house is a disaster and I’m feeling run down.

But, it’s a beautiful time of the year. God has given me friends and family that I love and that love me back. We have the means to buy presents for people. We have many, many people we send cards to. My family is gaining one — my nephew finally proposed. My best friend is having a little girl. When I feel the pain, I am thankful that I CAN feel it. When my house is cluttered with stuff, I am thankful that I have the stuff to clutter my house.

Uncharacteristically cliche and upbeat of me, I know, but that’s what Christmas does to me.
