Winter Wonderland

By Kaitlin Trujillo
On December 1, 2016

I grew up in a home that went all out for Christmas.

Every December our house transformed into a winter wonderland in the middle of the West Texas desert.

My parents made our house look like it was straight out of Southern Living Magazine’s Christmas issue.

I loved it!

Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. Everything about it is magical to me: the lights, the smells, the traditions and the good spirits.

Although this time of year is crazy busy, there is something refreshing about it.

It’s comforting to see people come together to celebrate, give, and be kind to one another.

I hope this season is filled with love, joy and relaxation for you.

I hope your day is filled with laughter and that your family enjoys each other’s company.

Most importantly, I hope you remember the reason for this holiday.

I hope you find joy in the birth of our Savior and I hope you spread that joy beyond December 25th.

The ornaments may come down, the packages will be unwrapped, and the gingerbread houses will crumble, but kindness, generosity and love will never be seasonal.
