Found this over at 320 Sycamore.
I just wrote and deleted an in-depth post.
Instead, wanna know what’s a curse?
A pretty smile.

Did that just happen? 2009, I mean. Like, the whole year.
January: Spent zero dollars on clothing. That’s a fact.
April: Bought Screamin’ Mimi… aka my scooter. I love her.
June: One word: Hawaii. I don’t even care about anything else that happened in June.
October: Took lots of pictures. Dressed up as a bumble bee.
November: Turkey, mashed, stuffed, etc. Times two.
If you’re lucky I’ll post about how I did on my goals for 2009 and fill you in on my goals for 2010. But only if you’re lucky.
Love you all!
Christmas of 2009 is a Christmas to remember. Forever.
Why, you ask?
Is it because…?
None of these reasons, good or bad, are why this Christmas will be memorable this year. The reason really doesn’t have anything to do with Christmas itself.
Christmas will be memorable because I felt so much love! Yeah, my house caught on fire and flooded, but so many people have offered help in so many ways. A friend I don’t know very well offered her wardrobe since she was pregnant and couldn’t wear any of it anyway (she might not have gotten any of it back!). A friend who’s a pro-face at computers offered help with data recovery if we needed it. I can’t count how many friends offered a bed to sleep in, or a home to celebrate Christmas in. I received phone calls, texts, and messages on Facebook filled with concern, sympathy, encouragement and love. A very good friend of mine was one of the firemen who showed up at my house at 3:00 am, he took a second to give me a hug before he went into my smoke-filled house, and gave me another one before he left. My uncle got up in the middle of the night to just be with his sister, niece and nephew since my dad was hours away working. My aunt prepared some beds for us to sleep in, made us breakfast, and helped us get eight loads of laundry started. My cousin’s wife folded our laundry and even started ironing our clothes!
It’s the simple things.
We didn’t lose much of anything in the incident, and we were very fortunate but that didn’t stop so many people offering whatever they could.
I’ve been blown away!
This is maybe the first Christmas ever I felt such a strong, honest, simple spirit of giving.
Thank you, everyone, for making 2009 the most memorable Christmas ever.

If Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner got married, they would be a hot couple. And they would both be Taylor Lautner. Baha.
