Thank you, Lord for the gifts you have so freely given to me and my family. My children are healthy, and so is my marriage. We have a comfortable (albeit messy) home. My parents are enjoying life and the grandkids. And a Disney trip is on the horizon (single digits even!) And as we move into the chaotic, often whirlwindish time leading up to Christmas, I pray that I can slow down and focus on what is really important. The reason for the season. Spending time together. Homemade gifts. Creating memories. And by the way, I hope that for you, too.
