I know I gave the Merry Christmas shoutout yesterday, but here we are on Christmas Day and I thought I'd send it out again.

Maybe it's because I'm older and I don't have kids, but the gleam of Christmas has softened a bit for me. I know I should feel a certain way this time of year, but I just feel a bit blah. Perhaps it's because there isn't that rush of getting ready to get together with family. Or maybe it's because we don't decorate. Or better yet, perhaps I just don't like that pressure of trying to find something for everyone. I absolutely love giving gifts, but it's almost as if you're forced this time of year. And I don't like that feeling.

Let me shake off this stuff with nicer thoughts. :)

I'm a lucky gal and I know it! I have a wonderful husband, crazy dogs, a supportive family, and amazing friends. Even though the immediate days ahead are going to a bit of a trial, I know that we'll get through it. I'll try not to whine too much about it. ;) And I'll face my fears about it, whatever those fears may be.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas. At the very least, it's a day off from work or school, eh?
