Blessings of the Week - vol. 36

Merry Christmas!


Family together. My parents arrived from NC on Wednesday. Yesterday, we were joined by DH's mom, brother and his fiancee. As the 10 of us gathered around the table for dinner last night, I paused to take it all in, and to give thanks that we are all together this year.


A Magical Christmas. This year was truly a magical year in our house. All three children were filled with the joy, the spirit, and the thrill of Christmas, in all it's forms. Princess, especially, was captured by it all... every single minute of it.


Abundance. There's nothing like a Christmas where all the kids' wishes were filled, all our bellies were filled, and our hearts were filled to realize just how very blessed in abundance our lives are. Thank you, dear Lord, for every bit of it... the big, the little, the mundane, the messy... even the challenging and difficult. Thank you.


May you and your family have a blessed and Merry Christmas. Won't you join me in giving thanks to Him in this blessed season?
