Because my husband has a job that is inconvenient this time of year it makes me think a little deeper about the many other people who sacrifice time with their families not just during the holidays but all year long. I grew up in a family with a very "traditional" schedule. My dad was home for dinner, he was always off work on major holidays. That was my world. I assumed that everyone had a life like me. Now I know better. I know how good I have it. My heart goes out to all those who are giving up their time with families so that my family can have a good holiday.
SO here's to the doctors, the police and security workers, to the retail and grocery store employees, the soldiers, the snow-plowers and many more who work so I can have a happy holiday season. When you are stressed that your package hasn't come, or you can't find that one last gift at the store... please be kind.
Wishing everyone in blog land an Fantastic Christmas and a Happy New Year.
