A case of the hiccups.

Sitting here waiting for a[n unusually long] case of hiccups to go away so I can go to sleep.

It's Christmas time and I feel thankful. It's good to be reminded of the importance and necessity of family in my life. I think I'm pretty good at remembering, but now and then a reminder is a good thing.

It's also an incredible time to remember the grace of God and all that God has done in my life and those surrounding me. Christmas is the perfect time of year to look beyond presents and stressful shopping days and to look, instead, at all the miracles God has bestowed upon us. I know that I am feeling particularly thankful this year. My sister moved away and it is so nice to have her back at home. I also take comfort in knowing that she is enjoying her new life away from home. It just feels like a perfect time to be thankful and Christmas just makes it that much better!

Happy Holidays to you and yours!
