Hilary Swank shines in a Christmas update, flaunting her twin baby bump.

For many people, Christmas is a time for reflection and gratitude; it’s a time to appreciate what you have and to remind yourself to be grateful for what you have rather than resentful of what you don’t.

As a result, it should come as no surprise that the internet, particularly social media, is flooded with uplifting posts about families and boldly displaying the aspects of people’s lives they are most proud of.

I enjoy taking a yearly family portrait with my loved ones in front of the tree. If nothing else, it will serve as a memento for years to come, when I can look back and grin at a past that is becoming increasingly difficult for me to recall.
