I want you to know that even though I did not post the final days in my Countdown to Christmas, I was soaking up the Thanksgiving by actually living it! We decided last-minute that we were going to go home for Christmas, which included a ton of packing and traveling, and very packed days of visiting family and friends, and skyping with my Brother on Christmas Day. I wanted to share with you my last days of the countdown though, so you can see that I truly was living the Thanksgiving mode!
Day 4: I was so thankful for my brother. One of my best friends and the sweetest guy! It was his opinion that mattered most to me, when deciding if my hubby was the one, to be with me forever. And now I am so excited that he is an uncle to my son, and will get to meet him soon, though he saw him real-time on Christmas Day when we skyped.
Day 3: I am so thankful for the little man in my life that I get to call my son. He is such an amazing sweet spirit, and SUCH a good son. I swear I want to have about 10 kids because he is so good. And I love being his mommy. I love the look that he gives me. I can tell that he knows I’m his mommy and he loves being with me. I think it comes in part from our relationship that we have been building with nursing, all day everyday. Though hard at first, I love it, and I know that he doesn’t want it any other way, (he hates bottles). I love him more than anything!
Day 2: That is besides his father. I love my husband so much. He is my rock. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him. He is a great supporter of his family and my best friend. I am so excited that I get to spend the rest of forever with him, and that we get to have a family together. We may have a rough couple of years ahead, where we sacrifice a lot, but that will only build character, and make our family that much more well off in the future. I’m so glad that he chose me.
Day 1: I am so thankful for my savior, and that the Christmas Season celebrates his birth. As December began I watched a church movie entitled Joy to the World. It celebrates the birth of the christ child with music and re-enactment video clips. This season I noticed that I appreciated Mary that much more. Her entire pregnancy experience, her love for her son, and the beauty that a perfect newborn baby can bring into your life. As you can tell I am still relishing in that experience myself and my son is almost 2 months old! I am so thankful for my saviour and for all that he has done for me and mankind. I will forever love the statement, “And man shall live forevermore, because of Christmas Day!”
I am so sad that the Christmas Season is done and that it went by so very fast, but I most definitely excited for 2013 and all the promise and beauty we have to look forward to.
From my Family to yours…
