Thinking about what a great time we had yesterday celebrating my Lia girl. She turns 4 today! I can't even believe it's been 4 years since I met her for the first time. What an incredible moment that will always be. I am so grateful to her for helping me learn how to be a mother. Every day she teaches me patience and love and kindness and compassion. She is my first one, and I am so incredibly grateful it was her.
Reading: I just ordered The Greatest Gift: Unwrapping the Full Love Story of Christmas, and I can't wait for it to get here! I've never read One Thousand Gifts, but I've heard wonderful things. That's next on my list, for sure.
Listening to everything BUT Christmas music. Have I told you that I don't really love Christmas? I think that may be a post for another time. This is probably a big reason I just bought that book ^^. Maybe something will make me like Christmas more (????). I love Advent, though, in case that makes you hate me any less.
Watching my sweet Siena play with Lucia. She is the kindest soul to her little sister. Big sis, she's not so nice to --- but she LOVES her little sister. It is pretty amazing to watch love grow and grow and grow right in front of your eyes.
Thankful for my incredible family. I can't even believe the gifts that I've been given. It scares me half to death to think what bad thing is going to happen to me to make up for all the goodness? It makes me anxious and sometimes it stops me from savoring sweet moments. But I want to appreciate the here and now. I want to get the anxiety and worry out of my head. Right now, right here, we are okay. And I can't whisper enough thank you's.
