I am Grateful ~

Christmas feels different to me this year. I am on my own and for the first time, in a very long time, I feel relaxed. It feels uncomplicated, and I like it. I have so much love in my life and for that I am grateful. I have a very colourful circle of friends and an amazing family.

I have wrapped the Jing Tinglers, Flu Floopers, Tar Tinkers, Who Hoovers, Far Ginkers, Trum Tupers, Slu Slumkers, Blum Bloopers, Who Wompers and Zu Zitter Carzays! I am ready for Santa! I am also ready to pack on a couple of pounds eating shortbread and sipping Bailey’s coffees. Felize Navidad!!

I am embracing those who have stepped into my life in an unconventional way with acceptance and love. My circle is expanding this year and that’s exciting. I am teaching my kids to be open, aware and accept what the Universe brings forth. Life challenges us with change, allowing us to grow and unfold as human beings. It’s how you deal with change that matters.

I have so much to be grateful for…

I have two incredible kids who I adore and LOVE spending time with. I am fortunate to have two amazing parents who are still in love after 60 years together. I am grateful for the unconditional friendship and bond I have with my kids Dad. My girlfriends make me feel blessed, supported and never alone! I love my man-friends who continue to make me smile and keep me somewhat grounded on my path to never say never land…and last but not least my furry friend who is the sweetest, most loveable, kind, crazy companion I could ever ask for…even when she pee’s in the basement and shreds her bed 😉

The spirit of Christmas is about giving, so please don’t forget to share what you are grateful for with those who are less fortunate this holiday season and all year round!

“Sooooo Santa I have nothing on my list this year, and it’s not because I think I am on your naughty list it’s because I have everything I need. Believing in the magic is what I will pass on to my kids this year!

My Christmas wish is pretty simple…a day filled with lots of love, ear to ear (((((smiles))))), twinkling eyes, warm long hugs, lingering kisses, spirits that soar to the moon and back, breathtaking aromas, full bodied wine that makes one giggle, a full tummy, a content heart, conversations that fill the room with chatter, happiness, joy and no dishes to clean up!” 

Take a moment to remind yourself what you are grateful for!

  1. Good for you Trace! You inspire me to try to be a better person.

    At first I thought all you were giving your kids was a box of “believe in magic” but then I re-read it and realized they’re also getting Jing Tinglers, Flu Floopers, Tar Tinkers, Who Hoovers, Far Ginkers, Trum Tupers, Slu Slumkers, Blum Bloopers, Who Wompers and Zu Zitter Carzays. Wow! Lucky kids!

    I’m grateful for YOU! Wishing you a wonderful Christmas full of love, laughter and buckets of magic of course. xoxo

    • Bon,
      You have always inspired me to take chances and to trust that everything will always work out. I just think of you and feel a sense of calm wash over me. Thank YOU for that! xoxo

      You are an amazing role model! You have taught me not to sweat the small stuff! You are so supportive and incredibly giving!

      Titty Milk,
      The moment we met I felt a surge of “oh oh oh pick me to be your friend” and I’m glad you did! You have a way of making me smile and giggle, clearly we were meant to meet!

  2. Beautiful post Tracy, well said, made me feel all warm inside. I have to admit though when you referred to your furry friend I thought for sure it was me…while I do pee in the basement, I don’t shred my bed…must be your “other” furry friend.
