i've got to admit,
this year i gave up on making it feel like christmas.
with out the snow and the childhood magic, it became more difficult.but i also have to admit
though the original christmas feeling didn't ever really arrive,
it was still a special day.
one that i loved.
one of the best parts? skyping my brother, i love him.
i miss him, but i also know that the work he is doing
is far more important than me having him in my life for two years.
so i can't complain; how can i?
he's performing miracles for the people in panama.
and changing our lives for the better.
i also gave some gifts and visits that are highlighted in bright pink.
i will remember this christmas with a smile.
