This visit was another bittersweet trip. My husband and I counted down till their visit, excited for the possibilities! ...But like every holiday - it had it's up and downs. Just like the "holiday movies we love" Mom kept saying (our favorite family movie is from the 1995 movie, Home for the Holidays) during this trip. "That's why we love that movie so much...." Ah, family.
Quote from Home for the Holidays, so you get what I'm saying here....
"Nobody means what they say on Thanksgiving, Mom. You know that. That's what the day's supposed to be all about, right? Torture."
But here's the thing, we forgot about all that the last night of the visit. Mom had an idea to do a Vision Board for 2012, so we did. Taking old magazines and putting out there what we want for the year ahead. It got me excited about what's in store and focus a bit on what IS important.
So maybe this will help me for the next occasion...to remember why we get together and what we love about those holiday movies, good and bad.
Love you guys.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
