Things That Make Me Happy At Christmas
Well, we’re here on Christmas! Most of the time, it’s my favorite holiday, but this year I have to work all day. The caregiving field, unfortunately, does not take any holidays. I love the people I care for so at least I’ll be in good company! Even though I’m sad about working, I do like to think about the positives. In order to keep my spirits up about having to work this year, I decided to make an itemized list of everything that makes me happy during the holidays! This post was inspired by the lovely lady at Life With Lynette, so go check out her stuff!
