...the opportunity to spend the holidays at home with my family. no matter what anyone says, for me at least, there is no substitute for the crazy wonderfulness that is everyone together in one place. missing out on that last year has made me really appreciate it and take great pleasure in every chance i get to be a part of it.
so thank you, everyone. for sharing yourself and making our celebration the wonderful gathering that it is. i lament future celebrations to be missed and look forward with great joy to those that will be shared.
