We are in the middle of a season when many of us are taking stock in all the good in our lives, counting blessings, or giving thanks. This holiday season reminds us each year to look around at all the positives in our lives. In other words, we count how many guests will make it for dinner, not those not coming.
Sometimes, as a parent, it is too easy to get wrapped up in busy schedules, expectations not being met, and messes being made (and not cleaned up.) Take a moment (take EVERY moment) in the coming weeks to bask in the wonder of being a parent. Take a deep breath from atop your baby’s head, close your eyes and mentally record your preschoolers laugh, or pause to note the size of the handprints you are scrubbing off the walls.
We cherish the opportunity to be a part of those moments too. From our hearts to yours, Happy Holidays!
