The greatest of gifts

This is likely my last post until after Christmas Day.

And right now, I don't have much more to say other than right now I'm reflecting on just how blessed I truly am.

My heart is bursting with joy and love for the amazing gifts I have in my daily life, not just at Christmas.

The gift of friendship - I have some of the best ones around, people who put up with my ranting and raving, celebrate the victories with me, support me in the tough times, have fun with me and aren't afraid to get a little crazy, and most of all just understand me and like me FOR ME.

The gift of family - It's a treasure to know that I have a loving family who loves me unconditionally and I'm continually thankful that I can see them as much as I do. We're not perfect by any means, but I still think we are special.

The gift of music - being able to continue to do something I'm so passionate about, singing and sharing it with others. And also as a listener - having so much awesome music at my fingers through my favorite radio station and via the internet.

The gift of love - I still find myself waking up each day wondering how I was so lucky to find someone like Nate. He is my all, my everything. My Christmas wish was for him to get better from a nasty cold and he is definitely well on the way to that point. I am very thankful for that.

I really do not need anything else as long as these gifts continue to be in my life. All I can do is give back as much as I receive.

I wish all of you a very blessed and Merry Christmas!
