My favorite season is just about anytime it is not 115 deg. in Phoenix, Az. I used to adore Thanksgiving and Christmas before marrying my husband and finding out dealing with the visits of 2 daughters (16 & 26 now) was a great hassle . Now I barely acknowledge the season. No one buys me anything And I only buy for friends now. 2 daughters are NOT ever in the mood to hear the word of God ..EVER !! I am trying to work on these issues ,I know this is not how God wants me to live.I need to love Christmas again !!!
I feell sad that my husband never encourages them to learn of God even in a small way.That is certainly NOT how he was raised and his parents are very loving Christian people. I pray they all will find some expression of God some day.
I want to get back to having fun and enjoying the Holidays. The eldest daugther of my husband hates me (but then she HATES her own mother also,so I am just next in line.). This Christmas my husband promised me just him and me ..NO kids at all. Well, we shall see if he holds true to this !!
Christmas is magical ,and I want it back !!! I pray to God , I can have it back and feel joyful again.!! Iknow God wants me to be happy and I want me to be happy.
