I love celebrating Christmas. I love celebrating the birth of Christ. There is so much to celebrate, so much to learn, so much love to share. It is my time for peace. I spend so much time preparing that I do not enjoy it until it is finally here. I'm sure you can understand as a teacher and then as a business owner we are pulled and prodded. That does not even include being a mother and grandmother.
When Christmas finally gets here and no one is pulling, I can enjoy. I can enjoy the calmness and togetherness that the season has to offer. I love it. I take in every second of it.
I am now back in the classroom but my home is still fully decorated awaiting the Epiphany. It is so hard to let go of this. It keeps me so much at peace. The birth of a child is so special. Especially when that child gave everything for me. I am so special that he gave everything for me.
Don't forget on this Epiphany to give your gift to the Christ Child. You have so much to offer. You are so very special.
