Not so Bah Humbug-ish

You know what I find amazing?

Here we are 3 days till Christmas (2days, 1hour, 15mins according to my kids) and I have not once used my most use saying this year.

Every year I have taken a dislike to the holidays. Every year for as long as I can remember in my adult life Ive dreaded the holidays. This year I have not said it ONCE!

I have not said Bah Humbug to ANYONE!

I have not said Bah Humbug about ANYTHING!

I have not even thought about using the phrase for ANY REASON.

This year I am looking forward to the day.

This year, it's about the love of family more so than what I have been able to give.

Amazing Revelation.

Good for you! I sure could use some of that holiday cheer...I haven't been my self this year...but according to your children, I've still got some time! Have a very merry Christmas!

I just realized that I haven't said it either! LOL

Thanks for the reminder. I've really felt the spirit of Christmas this year and it definitely hasn't been because of having money to shop because that isn't the case. It's just being able to feel like there's much more than presents under the tree.

Good revelation that it's not about the gifts but about the family and love.

Well, if you can find the value in any experience, then you've found something priceless. As for me -- I am still a humbuggy person at times so no judging from this part of the blogosphere.
