As I'm sitting here writing this, I am feeling not enough. In fact, that's how this post was birthed. Not being enough.

If you were to make a list of the people in your life that you needed to forgive, could you be honest? Would your list have two names? 20? None? How many of those people are family members?

So this is Christmas??

Well, the holidays are over for the most part. I have to say, I'm relieved. It seemed like this Christmas, I was under more pressure than ever.
