Weekly Hopes {19}

Happy Monday.
Is it me or does time really fly by these days?! I am so not ready for the holidays. I am ready as far as presents go, but I am behind decorating which leads me to just ignore it all together and not even think further. However, I know and always preach that we should live life to the fullest and not say we would do something some day. Some day may not exist, may never ever happen. Instead of putting it off, whatever it may be, we should do it. NOW. Not tomorrow or some day. This also goes for my wreath. Still have none. This brings me to my Weekly Hopes Series.

This week I am looking forward to accomplishing or experiencing....

1 - Sending two Christmas packages away {yes, I didn't do it last week...oops}
2 - Going to two Catholic churches and lighting two candles
3 - Rain
4 - Getting a massage
5 - Back to regular schedules {YES}
6 - Putting a wreath up. A must!
7 - More quality time with my favorite person

This time of year always forces me to look back at what the past 11 1/2 months have taught and given me. I have to say that 2015 was not my favorite year. It started out beautifully with a lot to look forward to and a lot to be thankful for. All this got halted abruptly when bad news hit me and I lost my mom unexpectedly. It is a void. It hurts. I wasn't ready for this to happen so early, and I know there are a lot of you out there that understand that feeling. This feeling teaches you a lot. It pushes you to a different level of disturbed, confused, lost, and mad. I have jumped over this dark hole and am regaining happiness, regaining the will to go out and do something. 2015 will end beautifully, and I know 2016 will start fresh, colorful, and happy. So, looking back at these past 11 1/2 months all I want is quality time with my favorite person. All I want is happiness. Every single day. All I want is to live life, experience things, see places, enjoy everything...even if it is a dust ball rolling out of my dryer and the cat chasing it...whatever it is, I want to embrace it and love the moment. 

What are you looking forward to this week?!

I smile when you make any reference to "your cat/cats" because jus let a few short months ago, you didn't mention such sweet words. :)
I'm so glad you guys get to resume a normal-ish schedule. This week might feel so foreign to you, I'm sure but it's a good change you'll have to get used to but you'll get used to it quickly. :)

I'm still not ready or prepared for Christmas. I've bought one gift and the rest has to wait until after Thursday (payday!! Lol), and the decorating, that'll have to wait until mid-next week. We're off to my moms tonight for a week while she's gone to Barbados so won't be doing anything at home.

Happy Tuesday! Hope you have a good one love xoxo
