Thank You for Joining Me
Emily over at Chatting at the Sky is hosting a wonderful Christmas party called "Everyday Unwrapped". She's encouraging us to notice the small blessings that come our way as we prepare for Christmas. It's easy to get lost in all the decorating, shopping, and baking that we miss the everyday gifts God sends us!
Yesterday, He unwrapped a beautiful moment for me. Darling Little Redhead had invited me to share a "picmic" with him. As we spread out his favorite blanket and sat down with our lunch, I thanked him for inviting me. That's when my three year old said (and I quote), "Thank YOU for joining me, mom!"
My heart went *SQUEEZE* and I thanked God for slowing me down enough to say "yes" to an indoor "picmic", to say "yes" to Everyday Unwrapped.
