Christmas Eve

I just noticed there have been 1,000 (exactly) page views and I just started this 3 days ago.  That is too cool for school.  I'll try to post at least once each day....and thank you for stopping by!  Please feel free to comment or share using one of the buttons below the posts.

It's Christmas eve and I just got back from dropping my son off at his dad's.  We attended a Christmas service first which was nice.  They offered communion tonight and also had little "to go" communions in case we wanted to show extra reverence at home over the holidays.  I admit, I did wonder how many weight watchers points each one would be, but since I'm not ON weight watchers QUITE yet, decided to not think about it anymore.

I'm going to sleep incredibly grateful tonight.  Grateful for loving family and friends, for an amazing son, for gifts and talents explored and yet to be explored, for my faith, and for hope.  Hope is a pretty powerful motivator.  I never lost all hope for reaching my life goals and with just a little tiny spark, they have all become ignited again.  I love hope.  I love goals.  And I love having another chance to reach for them.

I'm adding my all time favorite Christmas song.  Since giving birth to my son it just takes on a deeper meaning to me.


  1. Merry Christmas, Carly. P.S. Regarding your food blog, I lol'd at "love me long time sesame chicken." Very funny lady you are.


  2. Did you know that rats tied to a tether in the middle of a pool where they cannot see the wall will give up and drown in a matter of just a couple of hours whereas rats tethered in the same pool within eyesight of land will swim until they durn near die of exhaustion? Hope is a powerful tool. One you've had extensive experience in using. I have no doubt that by the end of this year, that spark is gonna be an inferno worthy of every celebratory Jet Puffed Marshmallow on the planet. Oh, yeah, and I got me a pit fork just waiting in the wings for ya. :)


Sorry to make you type in the "word verification" but I have been getting a ton of spammers lately. Just type in the word that you see and it should go through.
