Choosing to follow this dream of being a pastry chef meant a lot of sacrifices, last year I took 36hours of to go home for Christmas. That included travel time. This year, for the first time in five years. FIVE. I will be home for more than a day. I feel like I’ve been giving myself the “4th quarter, 4th quarter” dig a little deeper pep talk since October. And I know I’m finally in the home stretch.

I rallied for Church this morning. Determined to not only be there, but to be there in McGuire girl fashion. Hair curled, eyebrows done, lipstick, and panty hose. Regardless of the exhaustion, I was determined to fight for an hour of peace and time to remember the reason for this season. So I wore my reddest lipstick and tallest heels.

I am so grateful for my religion, and for Jesus Christ. I’m grateful that because of him I get to be with my family for eternity. I know that’s why I have such a deep rooted love for this gospel, its because I get to be with my family forever, and that is a reason to celebrate.

As my Momma says, “You can stand on your head for 48 hours.”

This time and distance is short in the eternal perspective, and don’t you worry. I’ll be home for Christmas.
