It’s Christmas Eve and I feel weary. Do you feel weary, momma? As moms the burden often falls on us to make Christmas special for our family, our children, and even our friends. Is it really supposed to be that way, though? I take joy in providing wonderful Christmas experiences and memories for my daughter, but sometimes I get so wrapped up in the decorating, the buying, the wrapping, and the traveling that I forget to take time for silent nights and even a little rocking around the Christmas tree. (Do you see what I did there?)
I don’t have all the answers, and I’ll never do it all correctly, but let me encourage you on this Christmas Eve, Mommy- take time to dance and sing with those babies, they’ll never be this small again. Eat a cookie, marvel at Christmas lights, and capture those precious memories- they’re so fleeting.
Merry Christmas! I hope that the time spent with your family brings you closer to each other and to Christ, whose birth we celebrate!
