Joyful Day; Gift of Life
Waking up at 2 a.m,
Expecting it, embracing it,
knowing that they grow up
In the blink of an eye.
shaking with anticipation, wonder,
magic of it all.
Led back to bed,
but first, with a shared and knowing wink,
a quick check outside
to see that the reindeer had eaten their veggie snack,
only a bit of carrot left behind
That they were there.
Tired parents. Eyes Heavy from missing sleep.
But smiles on our faces
From ear to ear.
Remembering. Understanding. Experiencing again.
The joy of giving.
And Receiving too.
Celebration of a child being born to us, our Savior and Lord.
Gifts given from the heart,
Made with their hands,
Only one of their kind.
You and Me.
Thankful for Blessings.
Knowing that tomorrow
Is a New Day.
New Opportunities for Growth,
To be a better You
A Gift we have
Because of Love and Grace
Hope your day was blessed with love and joy!
Who did you spend your Christmas with ?
We spent our morning with just our family of 5! We had little sleep since my 5 year old couldn't help but wake up at 2a.m. She was so excited! My husband handled it so much better than I would have since I do not do well without my sleep! At 2 we drove over to my in-law's house with my mom, sister-in-law and family. Lots of love! And many hand made gifts. Treasures.
Did you get any running related gifts this year?
I got my Garmin 205 that I was hoping for! I didn't have time for a real run today so I just went on a short and easy mile before we left for our family dinner. Just enough to play around with it for 8 min and 2 seconds. Enough to let me know that I. LOVE. IT!
Oh, and of course, I also got my cool running necklace from Meg, my Secret Santa. You can check that out HERE.
