Day 23 A Look Back

The holidays are hard. It's not easy to make everyone happy. There is too much pressure to make it perfect. Too much stress and not enough time. Too much of everything. I feel like I'm barely keeping it together, ready to burst into tears or run for the hills at any moment. I want my kids to experience the magic I remember from childhood. I'm sure my parents must have been under the same kind of pressure, but they made it look easy.

I never knew.

I hope my kids don't see the cracks. I hope they remember the miracles. I'll take a minute here and now to remember the best moments from this year. The ones that make me smile the hardest. The ones that help me keep it together for just a minute longer....

Merry Christmas to you all and may 2010 be as bright and shiny as a new penny!
