I will not do it no matter what...
I will NOT make you cry, sigh, or get misty eyed this holiday season.
I am reading some of the most gut wrenching, reflective, heart breaking stories out there. I am bawling my eyes out and wanting to jump on several planes to just come give you people hugs. I just can't do it. I am always the comic relief in my family. I will "strip down naked and run through the Cotton Bowl," before I will make you cry. (LONG family story, but has been said on more than one occasion, and the fact that I will BE at the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 2, means I might just have to make it come true. So if you see a fat, naked lady running around on your husband's football game on that day, It's me! I must have needed to make someone laugh.
Others of you are so reflective of the blessing you have in your life. I too am reflecting and doing a bit of crying on my own, and I love hearing your stories and thoughts of gratitude. But again, I think my role should just be the opposite. I think we all need a break from making ourselves OVERLY emotional.
With that said, a disclaimer: I love each and every one of your blogs and posts, I love that you put yourselves out there, and sharing it with me. I just wanted you to know that if you think your emotional cup is overflowing, come see me, I promise to only make you laugh. Or make you count your blessings you don't have the same crazy kids I do.
He will be running Naked with me! Ho ho ho!
I refuse to take credit for the pic.
