This quote about sums up my feelings about this Christmas:
“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.”
– Laura Ingalls Wilder
We are reminded that children are happiest when you get silly with them! I got an owl hat as an early Christmas present and Sig thinks it’s the coolest thing that we now have matching hats and I enjoy it too, even if I get strange looks when wearing it without her beside me!
The innocence of children is one of our greatest reminders of how precious life is.
Our biggest Christmas blessing is definitely our family. No matter how close or how far, our family is our gift from God and I’m happy we got to celebrate Jesus’s birthday with them – in person, via phone or Skype.
