I'm so thankful that my sweet sister Jessica is home for the month of December. She's been living in Indonesia for the past year and a half, and I've only gotten to see her once
in that time. Having her home has been a blessing. She brings out the good in me. She reminds me that life doesn't have to be so complicated, and that I don't need to stress out about everything. Having her here while we were all sitting around the Christmas tree, reading the Christmas story, just made my heart feel good. Last year's Christmas was weird, because neither Jessica or Nathan were here to be a part of it. This year, it felt like my family was back and that things were normal and good and the way they should be. I'll be sad to see her go back!
