Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

It's the Most...

Wonderful time of the year!
I love this time of year! I just makes my heart soo full of joy! Thanksgiving & Christmas are filled with such wonderful times with family and friends. As Alex gets older, he gets more "in" to holidays like most other kids and it is so amazing to watch him evolve with it. Though he is fully aware that Santa Clause is just pretend, he loves to talk about him and play imaginary games with him. So Precious!!
On our rides to school in the morning we have been talking about all that we are thankful for. It is so amazing to listen to the heart of a child as they describe all that they are thankful for. Things that as an adult we take for least I do anyway. For example, when was the last time I actually showed thanks to my car tires? Pretty important items don't you think? I can honestly say that I have never said thank you to my tires. Alex did. He even gave them a sweet little pat and tried to kiss them before I intervened. (being thankful is one thing...but a nasty tire kiss? I had to draw the line!) I learn something from my sweetie everyday!
I am so excited about Christmas and the true reason for the season. God has been so amazing to me and in my life that I just find tremedous joy in being able to celebrate him and praise him. I am even moreso excited to share this love with Alex.'s to the Christmas season....yes, before Thanksgiving has arrived!
