It's only 3 more sleeps till Christmas!
I don't know who is more excited ... me or my little girls =0) I have always loved this Season, and now being a mommy to two precious little girls ... well it's just such a joy to watch their excitement and joy. I can still remember as a little girl sitting up late in the night watching the lights on the tree flickering on and off and dreaming about what Christmas morning would hold in store. I still feel the same now as an adult and find so much joy in seeing my girls dreaming about Christmas morning.
I love seeing how my eldest is so concerned about giving her own little gifts to those she loves. Reading her little cards to her cousins just melts my heart. We are teaching our girls that it's not about how big the present you give is ... but that what you give comes from a heart of love. Just the other day in children church I asked the little ones what gifts they could give that wouldn't cost them any money. It has kept me thinking about the gifts that I can give to those around me every day that will touch someones heart. Gifts of patience and tolerance. Acceptance and understanding. A gentle word of encouragement or love expressed in word and deed. Care and kindness. The generosity of truly celebrating those in our lives. This Christmas may we give those around us the richest gift of all ... love!
All my love xxx
