If we aren’t intentional about slowing down, and looking around, this season can pass us by. As mamas, this time of year can feel especially busy, but it’s important to remember that the magic of this season should be just as much for us, as it is for our little ones.
I’m trying to let the stillness of this year carry over into Christmastime. To embrace these moments at home together, to soak in each of my children as they are right now.
We are taking every opportunity to let holiday cheer wash over us, to add festivity to each day, to watch our favorite Christmas movies, to play our favorite Christmas songs, to drive around to see all of the lights, to embrace matching jammies, Christmas dresses and bows, all of the yummy treats… Most of all, to embrace the love and redemption of this season.
I hope that you know, that though our to do lists might be a little longer during this time of year, it’s okay to add yourself right onto that list! To enjoy the things that you love most about this season, and to give yourself permission to soak it all in.
