If it wasn’t for my mom last minute inviting G and I to go Christmas tree shopping after church one Sunday, I literally may not have gotten one. Ok, ok, that may or may not not be entirely true. I honestly love Christmas, it’s just been hard for me to really get into the Holiday spirit this year with “the” move coming up and my hubby away at training and decorating/gift shopping has definitely NOT been on my radar. Poor hubs missed Thanksgiving and will miss Christmas with us as well. Of course, time marches on, and so will we. We are nearing the end though, and that light at the end of the tunnel couldn’t look any sweeter!
Now that lights are going up on houses and we DO have a tree, my 2 yr suddenly LOVES Christmas – all things Santa, Reindeer, Wise Men and “twinkle lights”. She asks me to sing Rudolph and Santa Claus is Coming to Town before bed each night lol. Each time she wakes up, it’s like the tree magically appeared in the living room and she’s seeing it for the first time. Gosh, I wish we all could keep that childlike awe and wonder into adulthood. I will say, having an overly enthusiastic toddler makes me want to seriously deck the halls… then I remember I have to do it all by myself, put it up AND take it down… soo then I rethink all of the extra garland lol. I have resolved to do a little something “Christmasy” each day to celebrate the season with her, but not go overboard or stress over everything being “big and beautiful” 🙂 Embracing the beauty in simplicity, and truly finding happiness in it may have been God’s early Christmas gift to me this year.
