our little Christmas
The holidays make me happy. I know it's not for everyone but for me I enjoy the season for giving, the season for gathering with family and the holiday break from school time to-dos. It's extra special to experience all the Christmas magic with a 3 year old, it's like it's all happening for the first time and the power of belief is so strong. Our 8 year old is beginning to question and understand while the innocence of only 3 years is totally taken by the magic of our traditions. I am just thrilled to be able to share in the joy of my littles while it makes the spirit of the holiday come alive for me. It is sweetness. It is joy.
Here is a pleasant story of the truth of Santa if you haven't yet read it.
Now we are only days away from a new year. A new beginning is what is always feels like to me. I like to take these few days of quiet after the storm of Christmas to take time to reflect on the year past. While my littles are quiet and content, so busy playing with all their new stuff, I sit in reflection making note (mental/spiritually) of what I want to work toward in this new year. A fresh start with a clean slate. For me the new year brings a feeling of lightness. Do you feel like that when welcoming January 1?
