Family Time is Christmas TIme!
Friday, December 14, 2018
My son and his girlfriend are coming home for Christmas as is their custom. They'll be home about a week but on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and possibly the following day they will be visiting other family who live nearby, which means that on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day I will be on my own.
You may think, especially since I'm blogging about it that it bothers me, but you'd be wrong. I grew up with parents who were divorced and Christmas came whenever the schedules allowed. Unfortunately my son grew up the same way and I've recently found out he feels the same way I do. Christmas time is whenever you are with friends and family. Heck, sometimes you create your own family!
To be quite frank, I love my biological family very much but my family of the heart are important as well. Family is as family does. If there is someone in your life that seems like family to you in every way but that one way, then guess what, they're family too!
Please feel free to include them in your traditions and reach out to those that just might be spending a lonely Christmas. You may be surprised to find that they make your Christmas happier too!
There's only one caveat of course, matching Christmas outfits are a requirement!
Merry Christmas my spark friends - whenever that may be...
