Merry Christmas Eve

I have loved this nativity set. The girls play with it every single day. I always wanted to find one they could  have fun with and not worry about it breaking. Other than occasionally misplacing Jesus...  I love watching them play with this one. They are so excited about the holidays. I miss my mom over these next few days more than most other days...  but the kids sure help you plow through any sadness. Hard to believe that three years ago today we had an amazing Christmas Eve and just a few days later my Mom was gone forever.  I need to stop wishing I could relive that last Christmas and accept things for what they are, but it is hard. I hope you are warm and safe and you realize the blessings that surround you every day.

I could not leave this post without a comment. Thinking of you all and wishing you could have just one more Christmas with your mom. She is loving you just as much every day still as she ever did and feeling your love for her, I just know.
