For me Christmas means family. It is a time for me to shift my thoughts from the financial success of work to the heart and soul of family. For without family why work so hard? The hardest challenge is to let go of expectations and go with the flow. Family as I grew up with is not family as I experience it today. When I was less than 4 feet tall I recall waking up at 5:00 am sneaking down the staircase to see what Santa left behind. I would tiptoe as softly as I could to check out the size of the presents and read the tags to see who they were for. Then I would sneak back up the stairs into my bedroom. If the excitement overtook me I would wake my sister and share with her what I saw. Otherwise I had to wait until everyone was up.
