Where does the time go? Just wish that there was a way to find more of it. I thought that when I lost my precious Jennifer, that time would just stop. Somehow, it keeps on going. I still miss her so heart just breaks, especially this time of year. Jennifer loved the holidays so much, as well a did my Mom. Mom would get so excited this time of year, and she would always try to keep that childhood excitement in us. I remember after losing my Mom and Dad, one day Jennifer told me that she didn't see how we could lose our parents and still breathe. She was so loving and had so much compassion for others. Sometimes I wonder myself how life can go on, and why things happen the way they do. I know that my new favorite book, The Shack, shows us how we have to go on, even after the loss of a child. (I still want everyone I know and meet to read this book). My Dad told me many times how the older you get, the quicker time passes. I must really be getting old, because time sure gets away from me.

On my friend Lisa's blog, she challenged us to slow down this Holiday season and to only commit to and do things that mean alot to us and our families. I accept her challenge. I hope that everyone will slow down during this busy time of year......just take time to know and remember why we celebrate Christimas! Jesus is the reason for the Season! Enjoy this truly wonderful time of year, and cherish your friends and family!!

I'm going to try really hard to accept the challenge too! My new mantra for 2009 is going to be "Simplify!"
