Christmas is coming. This year, I have decided I won't let it sneak up on me. This year, I got a head start with baking. The first Christmas cake is already done.
Nothing can top the memorable year of 2008, when we got snow on Christmas eve. I'm not even going to try to evoke the same kind of Christmas spirit for this year, but I will try to bring some of it into our home. Baking, decorating, writing cards, shopping for presents - all things that should start next weekend, when we celebrate the first of Advent.
In recent years, the Christmas Spirit was missing from my heart, and I haven't been able to get it back. I believe, you can only really enjoy Christmas when you are little, so when you are getting older you must try to make feel a child the same way you felt when you were small, and when Christmas was wonder.
I will have to come up with a plan on how to bring Christmas back into my heart, because I miss it - so very much.
