I can't remember the last time I've been so emotionally (yeah, I know I'm always emotional!) involved in the celebration of Christmas. Last years focus was our newborn baby, the year before that I cried the whole time. For years before that, I let other issues rain on my parade. This year, I have an amazing sense of peace. God is first in my life, and I can't help remember that He sent his Son to earth to save us!
The shopping is done, mostly everything is wrapped, and Mira and I are packing up to spend the day with my Sister and Niece baking cookies! I'm more excited about the company I'll be in rather then then job at hand!
Having a small child at Christmas time reminds me to slow down. We can't be every where all at once. There are other things more important than getting presents, like sleeping and eating and snuggling with family!
Mira is starting to walk, becoming more and more brave everyday. It's really funny to watch her take a few steps. Kinda like a Weeble, wobbling back and fourth. She also says "Thank you" all the time, reminding us sometimes to say thanks, even for the smallest things. Wow. Learning from a 1 year old.
I don't know if anyone even reads my blog, but Merry Christmas to you! May you all share the peace that has washed over me, and enjoy this holiday season for what it was meant for!
