I am so thankful that Christmas is about celebrating the birth of the Messiah.
It's not about whether your house is perfectly decorated in every room,
Or if you STILL do not have a skirt for the Christmas tree,
Or the fact that your presents are still not wrapped,
Or the fact that you have misplaced the stocking for your second born that was made by his great aunt,
Or the potential that your youngest's first Christmas pictures may be a little "spotted" (he had roseola this weekend - I thought that the fever was due to teething, until he broke out in a rash yesterday).
No, the focus of our Christmas is on Jesus. We enjoy coming together as a family, exchanging gifts with each other, and remembering what this holiday is truly about.
May you all have a very Merry Christmas!
(and to all, a good night sleep - especially Smiles, and me!)
