It’s a week before Christmas, and our house is busy, busy, busy–wiping noses, changing diapers, playing crash, coloring, blowing bubbles and such. All 6 of our grandchildren are here through Christmas–yea! We have gingerbread houses to decorate, cookies to bake, family photos to capture the memories and of course, presents to give and share. 🙂
I’m tired but happy!
In the midst of it all, Tom is still caring for me. He took me out this week just to give me the gift of quiet for a couple of hours. He’s thoughtful that way, and it has helped our marriage grow stronger because of it. May I encourage you to remember the importance of kindness and thoughtfulness this time of year? It may be the best gift you have to give, and it costs nothing but your convenience.
We had a couple of guest posts on other blogs this week that we want to share with you. We’re not sure when we’ll be back again–hopefully before Christmas. But if not, you’ll know why.
- Check out our post on Growing Up Triplets blog titled, Gatekeepers of Faith, Not Fear.
- And on Engaged Marriage blog titled, A Gift You’ll Enjoy All Year Long.
The first one is for parents who are wanting to raise their children to love and follow God and what motivates our parenting. The second post provides a creative idea for a Christmas gift–one that lasts all year long. We hope you’ll take time to read them.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Enjoy your special family time. Even in the midst of the crazy moments you are making memories.
Yes we are. And I’m grateful to God for every one we make. Merry Christmas!
I totally agree with you that kindness and thoughtfulness is one of the best gifts to give this season. The fact that it is Christmas the feeling of being loved and thought about is so strong. If children can feel and think so, adults/spouses are equally entitled to the same. This article sparked of what has been going on in my mind, wondering whether there would be someone to give a thought about me during the season. Well stated Debi, even if i don’t get anyone to do so, this is good enough! I’m consoled. Merry Christmas to you and the whole family.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for your encouragement. Happy New Year to you and your family too!
