People are amazing! Yes, I mean that in a sincere way. For once, I won’t be sarcastic. Thank you to everyone who helped make such a wonderful Christmas for my family this year. Santa came, we cooked, we talked, we shared, we loved and we laughed. The weeks before Christmas this year I wondered how it would be. How we would “swing it”. I have to admit, we didn’t “swing” anything. We had so much help, family, friends and laughter that I’m amazed.
Thank you to the special friends who realize that times can be tough for this single mom of three. Thank you not just for thinking of me and mine but for not judging us in the process. Thank you to man at the mini mart who offered each of them a piece of candy. Thank you to the Marine that helped with toys, thanks to my other single mom friend who always does so much, works so hard and loves without prejudice.
I think sometimes we forget just how good people can be. We get caught up in the doing and living that we forget there are so many people that actually care about others. I hope I can do and give as much as has been done and given to and for us the last couple of years. I hope that I can see when another is in need and help un-selfishly. I hope that my children learn and do the same.
One last Happy New Year to everyone. Each of you that hurts, goes without, loves, gives and lives! Happy New Year to you all and may the best of your past be the worst of your future! I can’t wait to see what 2011 has in store for me and mine! Live and Love – Shari
