What really matters

With Christmas behind us it is easy to feel a certain amount of sadness. All of the anticipation we feel as we get nearer and nearer to the holidays creates a bit of a let-down when they are finally behind us. For me, Christmas is my favorite holiday. Not just because of all the gifts; although I do really enjoy getting presents, but because of the time I get to spend with all the people I love. There is nothing in this world that is more important to me than my family. They have been through so much with me and love me unconditionally. I am truly blessed. So this year I am going to remain happy despite the fact that Christmas is over because the real joy of Christmas for me doesn't end with the decorations coming down - the real joy is my family and they are with me all year long. So look around you and realize that the "holidays" don't have to be over for you...make a commitment to spend time with those you love all year long. As a little fairwell to Christmas here is a video of the "Wright Family Grandkids." Enjoy!
