Gotta Love the Holidays

It's that time year again! The glorious holiday season. I love sitting by the fireplace, enjoying old Christmas movies (especially the musical version of A Christmas Carol starring Albert Finney - - simply the best!), and drinking hot apple cider. I don't see how or why people get so depressed during this time of year. Perhaps, the people who get depressed are the same ones who buy into all the false expectations and hype society passes out all year long. If you live by that stuff your bound to be discourage when you get to the part of the year thats about being thankful for the things and people that have been a blessing to you throughout the year. You feel that you are still bring up the rear of the pack, despite all of your efforts over the past 365 days. HINT, HINT - - the system is not designed for you to catch up. You will never catch up with the Jones' because they are in a hideous cycle of refinance, spend, refinance spend... they do not care about the ever increasing debt they are getting into. You don't want to go there.

Here are just a few of the things that I am thankful for:

1. Friends
2. A supportive family
3. Students that are interested in and enjoying reading
4. An awesome, growing relationship with the Lord
5. Salvation
6. All the positive, wonder experiences awaiting me
7. Good food
8. Good books
9. Good neighbors
10. Knowing who I am and what I want out of life
11. Pajama Days!!!
