a christmas carol.



This Christmas we are living in limbo. We're making a lot of big decisions right now, and I have not really felt the motivation to decorate the house. It's a little of a downer, because I love decorating for Christmas. Last year I actually took quite a bit of time making things to place or hang all over the house. Although, when we dug them out of the shed last week, most everything was smashed or broken. I don't feel like the money and time spent on decorations fits in our plans right now. And, I'm having a hard time realizing that this will be my first Christmas away from home.

On Sunday, I went to the Christmas Devotional in Salt Lake. If you're interested, you should definitely take a look at some of the words spoken. I decided that I'm ok with not having the "perfect" Christmas this year. I am very happy right now, and it won't kill me not to get everything I want this year. In fact, I think it will be good for me. Sam and I are preparing for some great big changes, in more ways that one. (No, I'm not pregnant. I know you were thinking it.) We are so grateful for everything that we are blessed with right now, and that's what I want to focus on this year.

We do have a beautiful tree and it smells great! (So what if it's already dying because I forgot to water it all weekend.) And, a few weeks ago we found this great copy of Dickons' A Christmas Carol at Ken Sander's. Isn't it beautiful?
