It's back.

On top of the health issues going on with my Mom's husband.... We found out my Granny (My Mom's mom) was told right before Christmas that her cancer is back in her lungs. She starts chemotherapy again next Wednesday.

This Christmas season has been a strange one. Our focus has been shifted and as I sat in the living room last night with my Mom, her husband, and my sister I found tears coming to my eyes .... Because in that moment, I just felt overcome with gratitude for the family God picked for me.

I've been reminded more than ever this Christmas season how blessed our family is to have one another.

I'm so so very blessed and tears are forming as I type.

Family, it's what Christmas is all about.

So, during this Christmas week, when you're surrounded by your loved one's, remember how blessed you are.
