What? When did I blink again and it’s Friday? Seriously? Sigh…
So I got a start on Christmas shopping, but it’s not anywhere near enough. I can’t believe we are sooo close! As I mentioned before, baking is where I’m going to have to cut back. So I’m taking only special requests from family. So far, they are begging me for peanut butter balls–that’s are so easy!
In other news, BLB (broken leg boy otherwise known as youngest son) stopped by the other day. Do you know it’ll be two years on Christmas eve since he was injured? Crazy! Anyway, BLB’s doing great in school, super focused on finishing his accounting degree and handling his leg. I hate that he was tested this way, but I am so proud of him, it’s the best Christmas gift I could ask for. It’s one of those moments where we are just so grateful it’s hard to put into words.
While I wish it had never happened, it did and looking back, I realize that it stopped my life so completely, it gave me time to re-evaluate where I wanted to go in my career. Seeing BLB accept that he needed to go in a new direction and face it with courage (and huge support from his brothers–they have been there for him in too many ways to count), inspired me do the same.
So to sum up–life can throw major sucky curve balls, but sometimes the new directions that come out of it are a good thing.
And speaking of that, I have a LOT I want to write next year. Right now, have two books and a new series on my plate Let’s blame BLB for that!
This weekend will be shopping and complaining about shopping. What are you doing this weekend?
