Merry Christmas from our family to yours. we've been trying to focus these few days on the main reason why this holiday is so special. so in between runs to the grocery store a bazillion times (seriously what is wrong with my brain that i keep forgetting 1 or 2 things every single time) wrapping presents, a visit from Santa, and all the prep that goes into everything...we are now finally slowing down and just relaxing and prayerfully pondering how really blessed we are with the simple things we take for granted... like waking up every morning, let alone in a bed with blankets and a roof over our head. yup, everything else is just extra.
this year we have a perfectly groomed tree that came from a lot. it's nothing like last year's tree or the gasp the year before. and sadly i kind of miss the funny story that came along with finding this tree. but it's okay because:
but we're not there yet.
so for now i'll enjoy my imperfectly decorated tree, and having all my kids under our very blessed roof.
it's a very special celebration.
we'll talk soon.
