Thankful this Holiday Season

The holidays are such an emotional time of year. 
There are so many expectations and so many pit falls, so much stress, yet so much joy. 

So many loved ones to cherish Yet so, so many to miss like a HUGE hole in your heart. My dad died a couple weeks before Christmas last year and my brother died 5 years ago. 

You have to know what to let into your life and what not to. 
Sometimes it's hard to know how to manage that! I work on it every single day, one moment at a time! 

All I know is that everyday I am grateful to have a roof over our heads, food to feed these angels and a healthy family. 

It's so easy to get dragged down by life. 
You have to fight. 
You have to fight everyday to stay a float. You cannot let the bad times over whelm you. Easier said than done but life must go on. 

My children are beautiful. They are filled with wonder and joy, curiosity and excitement. 

They can also be my greatest challenge at times. That's okay too! 

Life is full of ups and downs and this is the stuff life is made of! 

This everyday struggle, this everyday fight. This is what life is made of like it or not.

Never forget, it's the Journey not the destination.
We made construction paper Santas on Saturday!!!! 

I also just wanted to let you know I added a little promo code to my new ad space campaign as sort of a celebration for 20% off your ad spot of any size using the code "save20"

I'm so sorry for the loss of your dad Hanna. It's always hard around the holidays without special loved ones around. Know that they're always with you and watching over you. :)

Theses photos of your littles are adorable! It would make for a cute Christmas card. :)

I know what you mean. I can definitely relate. My Grandma passed away almost 7 years ago ( 4 days before Christmas ) & my Dad pasted away only 7 short months ago. It has been hard to get into the holiday spirit this year. I'm trying to put it all in God's hands & it's helped tremendously! Your babies are precious. Thanks so much for the follow, btw. I'm following you now too :)
