It's Not About The Stuff

23rd December 2011

And so, I may be sitting here listening to music, getting ready to break open the Baileys and watch an episode of The Sopranos before we get the train to Glasgow tomorrow.  There was one last traipse around the mall today.  I came home with a headache and a realisation, as I do every year.  It’s not about the stuff.  I can’t wait to get where I’m going tomorrow, I need to give my Dad a hug, and laugh for a few days in a row.  I may cry, too.   But I’ll blame that on the Baileys.

Have a great holiday, people.  I hope you are with the ones you love.

    Have a wonderful holiday with your family. The stuff is nice, but the time, the food, the family that’s what makes a holiday really special. 🙂

    Hope you had a great holiday! We’ve been trying to tell Boo and Radley that’s not just about receiving, it’s about giving, and enjoying everyone else’s company.

    and even when we are surrounded by the ones we love, we can be alone…. or wish we were.
