I Heart Christmas

I love Christmas. I was thinking today how everyone's spirits are up and love really is in the air around this time. Everyone is wishing others a Merry Christmas, where otherwise maybe nothing would be said. The heart is just filled with love for your family and friends whom you share a life with.
AND, the movies!! I love movies! There is always good ones on the TV, Christmas ones and non-Christmas ones. One of the best is A Christmas Story. It is hilarious. I think I know all the lines to the movie, and it still is funny to me. I watched White Christmas today too--such a good one. I always like the dancing in that movie. It was a great day today just lounging around with JJ, loving life. I am trying to not think about the fact that I have to work tomorrow on Christmas Day. Yuck. But the next day my family will celebrate Christmas, and I am really looking forward to that.
Today I am 8 weeks pregnant. I still can't believe it (even though the nausea reminds me daily!) Every year at Christmas I have wondered if I will have a baby by next Christmas, and now I know I will. It is so wonderful. I am so grateful to God for this miracle, a Christmas miracle!


  1. John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

    Savor the nausea, every second of it.

    I would have killed to have actually experienced my pregnancy but instead had to rely on a 3rd party and her loving DH to help me live my dreams (albeit, at 47) of becoming a mother.

    document every second, every belly shot, every thing on video and still camera.

    That's my wisdom.

    Hugs and congrats. this time next year will be amazing foryou

  2. Wow. Thanks for making me cry on Christmas morning, Heath! I love you. Merry Christmas. (And give that little baby kisses from her/his auntie!!!) Love you.

  3. I too know all the lines to A Christmas Story and yet I still laugh at the movie. It is a classic.

    Have a very Merry Christmas and just think your little miracle will be here next year to enjoy it with you.

  4. Ah, yes, the movies...we've watched Christmas Vacation about 100 times this week! Merry Christmas to you!!

  5. I love that your Christmases from now on will have a child involved! I am only a few days ahead of you in pregnancy and feel the same way. Our own little miracles are growing and changing every day. Hard to believe!
