As expected, my life during the Christmas season has been extraordinarily hectic, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Family and friends bring laughs and joy to my life that I cannot fully express in words. I have always enjoyed Christmas and what it means, and while growing up, there was never a lack of family or friends stopping by to celebrate with us in some way. Whether it was having an open house for our church family to stop by or spending a weekend with family in the mountains of North Carolina, Christmas time has always held a special place in my heart.
With that being said, it is little wonder that I didn’t take the time to do much development work or even post to my blog, as much as I enjoy doing both. Over the past several years, it has been amazing to see how priorities have changed, and this season shows that more than any other. Having the opportunity to give to my family, not only the physical gifts I purchased for them, but also the additional time and the opportunity to take some time off work: those are the things that will last a lifetime.
So, I can say without regret that, while I am anxious to get back to some of my projects, I’m not at all sorry for not being online more, but now that the season is drawing to a close, I hope to be able to get back into the swing of things. I hope each and every one of you had a very Merry Christmas and that you have a wonderful New Year’s Day this week as well!
