Merry Christmas to all of you moms out there! Whether or not your unwrapped something today, be blessed to spend time with your family and friends on this wonderful day. We all know that our children have awaken us early in the morning, wide-eyed and bushy-tailed. We act as though we are exhausted and not ready for it to be morning, but on the inside we are just as excited as they are. We know that we have worked hard to give them exactly what they needed and watching their faces as they unwrap each gift is such a blessing.
After the kids have unwrapped everything, wrapping paper filling every available floor space, we look at our family and smile. That sense of joy washes over us like a waterfall. We get up, unnoticed and start breakfast. The half smile still on our faces as we prepare that meal for our family. Hearing the kids talk about how excited they are for everything they received with humility and gratitude makes it all worth it.
We clean up the mess and sit back opening all of those impossible packages that take a combination of blood, sweat and even tears to open. And for a moment, we forget about the stresses leading up to that day, the bills that need to be paid, the house that needs to be cleaned and the food that needs to be prepared. For a moment.
Merry Christmas Moms! Thank you for everything you do that goes unnoticed and are thankless. You are the glue that holds your family together. So, thank you once again, your efforts are not in vain.
You. Are. Amazing!
Now back to reality!
