My Christmas goal for my little family his year was simple (and yet not simple at all) – we were going to have a fun Christmas. The kids were finally going to be able to look back on a year and say that was a good Christmas.
The last few years have been filled with so much trauma and stress, both inside our small family and in our larger family. All I wanted was for them to say this was a good Christmas. It’s important they have really good childhood memories to look back on.
Jacob walked up to me today and said you know mom, this was a real fun Christmas. I had a good time.
Success. Happiness. Gratitude. Love.
And what they will remember isn’t the things they got but the things we did. Those are the memories.
