A Cup of Good Cheer

I believe what everyone needs this holiday season is a cup of good cheer. I don’t necessarily mean indulging in alcohol either.

This holiday season has felt challenging and for most of the month I have felt like, what my husband calls, the bahhumbug Grinch. We had been dealing with some issues that were causing great anger in me, along with needing to watch our finances a little closer. This toppled with the fact that we hadn’t hung our Christmas lights on the house, nor had we gotten a tree. I was also behind in my usual Christmas baking.

Then finally like a puzzle, all the pieces started to fit together. We got our issue to a point where we can enjoy some quality family time. A neighbour suggested to drape some lights in our bushes since I was too chicken to climb up onto the roof. We eventually got a Christmas tree set up. I got a bit of baking done. Then we hosted our annual Christmas party. For the past few years my oldest daughter has hosted a Christmas party. We invite a few of her friends and their families. This year we had 2 families join us and we had an awesome evening. The evening was filled with friends and good cheer. It was exactly what the bahhumbug Grinch needed to grow her heart.

It is all too easy to get wrapped up in the gift giving. Trying to figure out what to get the people who have everything and figuring if you can afford everything you want to do. We tend to forget the true meaning of Christmas. It is not about all the presents. It is about spending time with our loved ones.

Have a Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

    A cup of good cheer goes a long way and spending time with loved ones is certainly what I believe Christmas is all about.
    May you and your family have a wonderful year ahead Jen.
