Christmas 2009

I feel a range of emotion this holiday season. I am grateful for time spent with my sister, Mia, on Tuesday. Lunch together at the Cheesecake Factory. Surprising her with gifts. Having Grandma over for Christmas dinner, just talking and laughing. Opening presents together in the morning. I experienced the generosity and kindness from my parents. Good memories and good times. The Christmas is not about the presents but about togetherness; presents are simply tangible expressions of what our family likes to say,"gifts from the heart." I'm thankful for this holiday season because I got to see all my family at different times, and enjoy spending time together. Sleeping overnight at parent's house gives a warm cozy feeling. Good times.
