As I scroll through my Facebook feed and see everyone’s Christmas time pictures, I struggle with feeling like my Christmas won’t measure up.
I don’t have a bunch of siblings and nieces and nephews that all get together and take pictures.
I don’t plan on cooking a big Christmas dinner with all the trimmings surrounded by a table full of relatives.
We don’t have a bunch of presents under our tree to be opened.
All of this can make one feel lacking.
Until I realize what I do have.
I have a family that loves me. A husband and 2 adult children who love me and will be here for the holidays.
A wonderful sister and her husband who I will see later today.
I have a dad nearby with whom I will be blessed to spend the next few days with.
I have a wonderful bunch of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, who I will miss seeing this Christmas.
I have an awesome family-in-love who, even though I will not see this season, I’m so blessed to be part of their family for over 30 years.
I have a mom, dad-in-law, aunts and uncles, and all my grandparents who will be spending this Christmas with my Savior.
And above all- most importantly- I have a Savior- Jesus Christ- who makes this season possible- who is the Reason for this season.
I am blessed.
