I'm not that religious...

...just in case you were thinking that I was based on my previous post. I still put up Christmas trees in my house and Santa stops by on Christmas Eve and I probably should even give more money to charitable agencies than I do. It's about finding a balance and realizing meaning within. That goes for a lot of things for me in life~ including Christmas.
I definitely have a strong belief as you can tell- but I also like to have fun and create memories for my family within certain boundaries of that belief. Today it was about being together, being grateful for so many gifts we have received- many of those "gifts" are not things- but much more than that, and it was also about letting go of what I felt Christmas had to be. For us that meant we had very low expectations and demands on our day. We spent our time together, enjoying one another and making gingerbread houses too. I think it was a day well worth remembering.
