It’s the most wonderful time of the year

We are 2 days away from Christmas! I don’t know where this year went. Don’t we say that about time so often? It just “flies”. My daughter is 5 this Christmas, so it’s really one of the firsts she going to remember forever. Although, she never forgets a.n.y.thingggg. *mom eye roll* I wanted so much to make this season the most wonderful time of the year! A time of giving, remembering and making new memories. I had a Christmas activity planned for each day of the month! I was kinda proud of myself, because I made the list back in November! However, we only¬† got to day 1. That’s right, ONE day out of 25!! Epic mom fail! After a bit of a self pity party, a few tears and some quite time, I felt like the Lord was whispering to my heart, “She’s what’s important”. I could try and fill our days with wonder and magical things, but really, it’s about just being with her. Letting her know in all the small ways how much she is loved and adored and treasured! Not just by her dad and I, but by her Heavenly Father! A Father who gave His Son for us. And that, is WONDERFUL!
