A Holiday Toast

Happy holidays to all! It's Christmas day, tomorrow is my birthday, and I'm sickly. Such is life however and I am thankful to have my appetite because if I couldn't eat it that would be very sad. Also, it could be worse. Things could always be worse. So I won't complain.

This holiday, remember to be grateful for all the wonderful things you have and all the wonderful things that are coming your way...and I'm not referring to material things...although I'm certain the sales tomorrow will put a glimmer in your eye. This holiday though, be thankful for family...friends...your health...the roof over your head that keeps you warm and dry...and the people (and pets) in your life that make you smile. All of these things make any hardships you face worthwhile. 

I'm truly thankful for the people in my life that make me smile with a simple text or phone call... extremely grateful that I am able to spend this holiday with my parents...and appreciative of the stillness of Christmas. It's the little things that make a world of difference. 

I'm going to keep it short today. Go spend time with your family and friends...eat, drink & be merry. Big hugs for the ones you love and a big hug from me to you!

Tune in next week for another vote-winning topic!

Until next time friends...peace, love and hugs!
