Old Christmas Day and Reflections

.

This Christmas has been hectic but amazing, for my blog , I have seen a huge amount of readers from all over the world! The blog even got to # 57 on the fastest growing blog on WordPress.com, a far cry from last year.

In my last official blog of the season on Old Christmas Day I can’t help but reflect on the many joys that I have been a part of in 2008. First and foremost I am so grateful to have all grandparents of our children; sometimes we do not acknowledge this till it is too late, I for one treasure this. Who knows what tomorrow will bring so it is nice to stop, look, smile and make memories for the next year. I am also happy for the many friends and family I have around me, I do indeed feel lucky and blessed. It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season, and it is fine to do so, as long as we really remember the real reason for the season, religious wise and family wise.

Please take a look at some of the pictures of the season, most of you will not know the people but you will understand the connection to family and friends at this joyous time of year.
