Preparations. Anticipation. Excitement. All of it leading up to the yearly celebration of the birth of our Savior. We had what I would call a “quiet” celebration. We read the Christmas story and had the gift-giving on Christmas Eve. That way we could concentrate on going to church on Christmas day. The kids behaved. Now we have a week of Christmas break ahead of us. I will be staying with them, doing some baby-sitting so their mom can get some of her weekly work done.
With the children surrounding me, talking “miles” an hour, I have not been able to pick up inspiration for writing. I guess it will come back as things get back to normal.
I will have a little picture show of the youngest, Sarah, three going on four. She showed big signs of being an organized person.
What did this little girl do? She stacked her presents! While her siblings were excitedly opening their presents, she was busy stacking! “Look, I stacked mine!” she said. Her favorite present on the top–a Veggie Tales Bible Story Book. “And I have my own Bible!”
So, life goes on! I hope I will feel more inspired tomorrow.
