Merry Christmas

The Christiansen family Christmas was a memorable one!  I sure hope everyone can say the same and that you all took a few extra pictures, a few extra moments, and a few extra hugs the last 24 hours...

We are so blessed to be where we are today, surrounded by the amazing love and support of our family and friends.  While we know we have it good, it wasn't until other Mothers on my Tumor Groups started sharing some of their struggles that I realized just how good we have it.  Yes we have cancer....but when it comes to other drama and chaos in our lives, we just don't have it.  We don't have to worry about hurting feelings, calling people back, or making sure to remember important dates....from someone who prides themselves on organization and social obligations - this is a huge pressure off my back.  Other families don't necessarily have it this easy.  So the next time I start to think things suck...going to pull that little one out of my back pocket.  We are truly lucky to be surrounded by such amazing people. 

Merry Christmas everyone...go ahead and pat yourselves on the back for a job well done helping out the Christiansens this year -- You deserve it.
