I just got back from the most wonderful pre-holiday celebration. My boyfriend's parents hosted a Christmas Eve One Day Early party at their house. I wanted to tell you all about it, so I wrote a few paragraphs about how the night went, who was there, and what we did, but then I deleted it. It's impossible for me to write about the night in a way that would honor it, and also, I want to keep it personal. It was that good.
I had the most fantastic night. I've been complaining about all that's wrong lately, and tonight reminded me of all that's right. Love, family, celebrations. Everything was right. Everything. Nine children under the age of ten ran around the house, laughing. I was totally in the moment, and very thankful.
I am keeping this short, because I am still high from the happiness of the night and I want to go to sleep encompassed by this feeling. I just thought that since I've shared all my problems with you, I should also share the good stuff.
Life can be pretty damn amazing.
