Ahhhh, the night has come...

Where I sit all alone and assemble toys and feel like a big fat loser. lol. Seriously though, being a single parent doesn't always suck. Most of the time, I am 100% cool with it. But then... Yeah. Christmas Eve sucks. Somewhere in between sitting there all alone with your phillips head screwdriver and 47,000 AA batteries and cutting those million little wire ties on the Barbies, that's when the pity party starts. I have a good friend who is a single dad and we were texting earlier seeing who could out-pity the other. It was hilarious. The truth is, I do get depressed sometimes about it, but at least I can sit and laugh about it, too. It's just a good night for a good bottle of Sin Zin! (ZOMG, get some. Now. Heaven.)

Church tonight was amazing! I let the girls stay up late, we went to the 9pm service, and I am SO glad I did. They were in awe of all the music, the message... Everything. It was awesome. The whole way home the girls were ninety-to-nothing about Jesus... NOT SANTA! Ahhh that alone made my day. I'm really excited for tomorrow, to see some family, eat some good food... Then, I can't lie, I'm also excited for all the shenanigans to be over with. I am all about some CHRISTmas, but the commercialistic family drama-ing bs of it all... THAT I could do without. Like our pastor said tonight, it all goes back to John 3:16, where he pulled it all together.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
He so loved the world that he gave his son so that who believes shall have eternal life.

Loving... Giving... Make for a rich life.

I wish all of you and your families a beautiful, blessed Christmas!
