What do I have to be thankful for this Christmas… a lot of things. I have the best husband in the world that anyone could ever ask for. I have a great job and great co-workers. I have great friends in all walks of life. Some I know in person, some I know online, with some of those friendships stretching back almost 20 years. And yet, when I look back at all of that, I have nothing to regret, not a single, solitary thing. I have always been a firm believer in this: You have to know where you’ve been to know where you are going. Don’t spend all of your time dwelling on the past, keep moving forward, but don’t forget your roots.
I want to especially profess my love for my husband, Greg. He is the best partner a guy could ever ask for. He puts up with a lot from me and trust me, I can be quite a challenge in domestic life sometimes. But if there’s one thing he has shown me, it’s an unwavering love and affection that you don’t often find, even when you think you have found it.
My advice to you this holiday season is this: Hold those close to you even closer this Christmas. Love those near you like you’ve never loved them before. Because if you love them, then the world can be an amazing place. It already is an amazing place for sure, but we can make it even more amazing than it already is. I truly believe that.
