When I was growing up holidays were particularly stressful events. Every time we attempted to gather together as a family there would be some unbelievable drama of some sort. Not your garden variety holiday angst but very difficult and painful situations for everyone.
When I had my own family I was able to finally have those beautiful and peaceful gatherings that filled my heart with joy. I am so very grateful that I have such a wonderful family that it's ok even if I burn the bread!
I love you with all of my heart and thank you for being my family!
