I treasure these quiet mornings that allow me to not only take time for myself, but help me to recharge so that I can be a better wife and mom.
Wishing all our family and friends (cyber friends too) a very Merry Christmas.
The stress and worries and refereeing and to-dos of the past couple months have slowly accumulated to the point that my cup is overflowing.
Every year for as long as I can remember, we put up our Christmas tree the weekend of Thanksgiving and took it down the day after Christmas.
These rainy days that keep me locked up with my little ones, they remind me that I’m right where I need to be, living a bit more slowly, if only for a day or two.
Though this little hike seems so small in the grand scheme of things, the fresh air and immersion in nature helped to smooth over my rough edges just a little more.
So I am learning, slowly but surely, to look for Him not only at the summit of life, but at the base.
I’ll say goodbye to 2014, which was a busy but fulfilling year in which God taught me a lot about motherhood and myself.
With Christmas just days away and an unusually quiet house that leaves me alone to hear my own thoughts, I’ve had the time to soak in the awesomeness of new birth.
