I am feeling the effects of the Holiday rush. Rushing to get things checked off my list, gifts purchased, wrapped, cookies made, plans finalized- PHEW! It’s exhausting, and with two kids in the mix, I am really struggling to keep my head above water.
However, I LOVE this time of year. I love making Christmas cookies and candies, spending time with my family, buying gifts, having the Christmas tree up, listening to Christmas music, etc. I went to church this past weekend for the first time in a LONG time (hello crazy anxiety about leaving Brayden in Sunday School) and it was incredible. I love singing Christmas songs with an entire group. It’s truly moving. (Oh, and yes, just K and I went to church. Brandon stayed home with a sick Brayden. This coming weekend, I will face my fear and introduce him to Sunday School. HOLD ME!)
I am trying to stop in the midst of our plans and be truly thankful for what Christmas means- the birth of Jesus Christ. I will never tire of the story of baby Jesus, the glory, and the pure love that this season brings around. I hope you are all surviving in the midst of the holiday craziness, no matter how you celebrate.
And with that, I have some cookies to tend to!
