And so it begins...

That festive season. When things get a little a crazy, a little busy, a little bit more filled with love and a lot more covered in magic and sparkle and general all round feel goodness. It really is a lovely time of year. Why? I don't know. Is it something about the end of the year, knowing that a whole 12 months has passed. We've seen seasons pass, our children grow, our paths change course and our lives roll on each day. Is it something about remembering your faith, the love and peace that brings. The knowing that all can be forgiven, things will get better just give it time and knowing that this is when it all began. Is it something about knowing you have a few days off to spend with family and friends. To gather close, to share moments and time, to be together and exchange gifts. All I know is that magic seems to sparkle and shine just a bit harder at this time of year.

I find so much in life busy and hectic and worrying. But id like to find time this festive season to embrace my family, see the magic behind the mundane, be accepting of what we can do and know our boys really are lucky, there is lots we don't have but they do have so much to be thankful for, to enjoy this time, to reflect on another year slowly ticking away and to look towards the next with anticipation and I'd really like to feel happy. To not just put that smile on and let things wash over me. To feel happy from the top of my head down to the tips of my toes. And twinkly Christmas tree lights, mulled wine and mince pies will help all that I'm sure. 

Are you looking forward to what christmas may bring?
