Emotions Of Christmas

Every year I gear up for the 25 Days Of Christmas on ABCFamily Channel. It is a time when I not only reflect on past Christmases with my princess, but those of my youth. I remember sitting down with my aunt C and watching "White Christmas" for the first time! I was elated! Danny Kaye and Bing Crosby have since been two figures embedded within my heart. To hear Bing Crosby sing "I'll Be Home For Christmas" places a huge lump within my throat.

It's A Wonderful Life! This movie fills my heart with sheer joy. When I was little I use to say that this will be the title of my life story. If my life came to a screeching halt today (not checking out anytime soon) I can honestly say it has indeed been a wonderful life! Yes, there have been many bumps in the road, but it's those very bumps that give us the strength we need to keep moving forward.

Life's Highlights:

1. I walked when doctors said I wouldn't
2. I grew up in the best family ever!
3. I was blessed with two Angels as Grandparents
4. When I won 1st place @ The Special Olympics at age 7
5. Giving birth to my princess (My Greatest Accomplishment)
6. Marrying my True Love
7. Having 7 of my poems published (1 was published when I was in the 6th grade) :-)
8. Learning to drive when even my family doubted this decision (NEVER had an accident - GO ME!)
9. Learning to give God Full control of my life
10. Loving The Skin that I'm In - COMPLETELY
11. Embraced My Destiny

In the soundtrack of my life you'll hear a few songs that totally reflect who I was and who I am now. But, the most important song is in no way Christmas related. However, it conveys my message to the world in the greatest way.

My Way

The record Shows
I took The Blows
And Did It
My Way!
