Ok Monday, LET’S DO THIS. (Sometimes you have to pump yourself up and up and up on a Monday morning, am I right?) Good morning, all! Honestly, this morning snuck up on me. As I got into bed last night (at 9pm, for real) and realized I didn’t have a Grateful Heart post written for today yet, I could have gotten out of bed and thrown something together quickly. But I chose sleep 🙂
Anyone else’s next few weeks crazy busy as we get closer to Christmas? I have quite the busy day today of paying bills, sorting out switching insurance companies (which is always such a joy, you know?) and then tonight, Crew gets to eat cookies with SANTA! (“Santa! I know him!”) Well, Crew gets to meet Santa – for the first time ever! ah! – and I will be eating some cookies 😉 My babe is still a bit too young to understand what’s going on but I’m still seeing this holiday in different ways just by watching him taking it all in… like the way he looks at the lights on the tree, or the way he reaches out to touch the soft (faux) fur on his cute bear stocking. Or the face he makes when his mama puts a snowman hat on his head (ha!). It’s so crazy he’s experiencing these things for the first time and even though he may not completely understand it all, he’s still present. He’s still looking and feeling everything with real emotion. And that right there has been a good reminder for me. Introducing him to Santa tonight will be so much fun, but I really can’t wait to share with him the REAL reason we celebrate Christmas – Jesus!
Today my heart is grateful for all of these fun holiday things I get to watch my son take in for the first time. My heart is grateful for Jesus and for my greatest gift ever – CREW!
This will be the last Grateful Heart linkup of 2016… I’ll take a brief pause until after the new year and then start it back up. SO- because of that, this linkup today will be open until Friday December 23rd! Feel free to link up as many grateful posts as you’d like. And I still have a few fun posts to share with you all in these next few weeks so be sure to keep checking back here. (You can also find me on Instagram!)
