Sigh..... Christmas is over...


When did the kids grow up and where does time go? Even though they aren't little and "cute" anymore, they are still a joy to watch as they anticipate opening their gifts. This year it was also a lot of fun to watch them as they gave to others. To see the looks on their faces, as they eagerly gave away their gifts that they had personally picked out and bought for others, was priceless. I'm so proud of the children and what they have become. The family gatherings were wonderful and there was a feeling of love all around. It's kind of sad when things go back to normal and we don't concentrate as much on pleasing others, as we do during Christmas time. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could truly keep Christmas in our hearts year round?

Your children are beautiful! and you have 2 of each just like me! How wonderful it is to sit back and watch them as they grow from "what's for ME" to "Look what I got YOU!" Makes a mother proud, for sure. Hope you and yours will have a very safe and happy New Year, and remember, even if they don't show it all the time, your children DO have Christmas in their hearts - it's because you raised them well.
