For the first time this whole month I am FINALLY starting to feel like myself again. And, Christmas is only 3 days away.I feel like a bad person not having posted these past couple of days, but honestly, I was out enjoying life. Yesterday, Dianne and I drove to Nashville under pleasant circumstances and met with our wedding photographers to look at our pictures from the wedding. Dianne also stopped by Vanderbilt Children's Hospital to drop off some toys for Christmas. She has become really involved in wanting to do volunteer work there. It makes perfect sense. She's so kindhearted when it comes to children and her being able to have the opportunity to help out while I'm stuck in the hospital is pretty awesome.
I'm going to be driving home to see my parents on Christmas morning. I always love being able to watch my little sister open her presents up on Christmas morning. It's very nostalgic watching the twinkle in her eye when she sees that Santa came. The unfortunate thing this year is that I'm not going to be able to go to my Grandma's house when the rest of my family comes over. Since being in the hospital last week, my immune system is still very weak and the fact that I have a very large family hanging out in a relatively small area probably doesn't bode well for my health. It's really sad, but that just means I'll have to do it even bigger next year.
Well, Dianne's mom is making lasagna and it smells amazing so I think I might go lend a hand. This Christmas season, take a moment to sit down and reflect about what you're thankful for. I've been doing alot of that here over the past couple days and it really makes you realize what really is important over Christmas. It's not the presents, or the food. It's the little things. It's being able to be with your family, talking, playing games, just laughing. So, cherish the little things. Because at the end of the day, that is what really matters. God bless.
