During this holiday season, there have been ups and downs, but in the end, I realize and remember just what this season is about.
The birth of our Savior is such an important reminder of the true love that is unavailable on this earth. Feeling love like that is an incredible feeling which I am nothing but astounded by every single moment of my life.
Coming home for holiday is an interesting event. There's so many people to see, events to attend, and food to eat (especially with my Italian-Irish family). There's also the wonderful chance to sing in my parish choir, work at my old job (money is always good), and enjoy the sights of the town where I've grown up.
Coming home for Christmas is a great reminder of the past moulding me into the person I've become today, and future experiences that can help mould me in days to come.
