Christmas is over and what do you do? I have friends that immediately “take down” Christmas around the house. I’ve never been that person…usually waiting until New Year’s to roll in, (just like my Momma does). But one thing that I have ALWAYS done is stay up late the night before just “remembering” our Christmas and how it played out. I’ve always felt that if somehow I didn’t do that, it would be a lost Christmas in my memory bank.
This year I decided to “un-decorate” before New Years, (I imagine I’m anticipating some busyness in my life). I’ve stayed up late and reminisced, slept in just laughing & smiling silently at how much I love being my kids mother. (Truly brings the perspective of the Christ child’s birth and HIS mother.)
On a personal level, the blessing of being able to have given birth to my two, is still beyond amazing to me. So when I have the opportunity to see my daughter carrying her first child, I can’t help but think how she will be in this amazement soon and what a wonderful mother she will be.
With all of that said, I couldn’t resist from sharing this little gem that my husband captured while my kids and I sat together feeling the baby move around, singing and talking to him.
My friends that are grandma’s tell me all the time that being a grandparent is amazing…I’ve had a hard time with that concept because to me, being a MOMMA has been the highlight of my life. It truly has!
But then when we sat there in this little capture, I internally wept with joy and wonderment in the moment. This will go in my memory bank forever… definitely NOT a LOST CHRISTMAS!
What could be a more precious way to celebrate the birth of our Savior than anticipating the arrival of our very own child? I can’t really think of anything at the moment~
