Ah, Christmas. And Thanksgiving. Rolled into one post.

I know, it's the day before Thanksgiving. What's with the Christmas songs already???

Well, I love Christmas songs. And I gave myself permission to listen.

And these are some favorites. Be happy. I fondly remember listening to these albums (on record, I might add) while the family decorated the house in lights and santas and nativity scenes and snowmen and ornaments and fake snow. Tree skirts and doilies and wreaths. The smell of pine needles (when we had real trees) and candles burning. Such wonderful times. I miss them.

But, since it really is Thanksgiving tomorrow:

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I'm so grateful for so many things. I should make a list. I will.

Roof over my head
Clothes on my back
Food on my table
My job

Pretty basic, but I truly am grateful for these things. I've heard some stories this year about people in need and those who've stepped up to provide comfort and care, and I am just absolutely blessed. Love you all.

So, remember this post?

Well, now I want you to read this article.

Pretty awesome. I've decided--this was actually part of what was helping me feel better--that I'm not going to worry about "happiness" anymore. I'm just gonna live my life and hope for the best and "Come what may and love it" (thank you, Elder Wirthlin).

You know. Keep Moving Forward.

The end.
