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.

Wow. What a sweet, special moment! Thank you for noticing! This one is for the record books for sure. I'm so glad you linked up.

What a sweet moment! He's such a cute little guy! We all need to slow down and take notice of the little things. Great idea!

What a sweet moment! It's good to slow down and focus on what's really important all year round!

AAAaaawww! So sweet! :) We were talking today in our Bible Study about how we end up "minimizing", we get in such a rush that we don't really do anything well since we're so pressured to get on to the next thing...I thought about this in relation to my kids. How many times do I just rush them through the day so I can "get stuff done" instead of taking the time to really connect and enjoy them? :) I would most likely find many "gifts" there!
