going through the pre-nap routine this afternoon, natalie picked out 'Clopper: the Christmas Donkey' to read.
it's not often, in the middle of spring and temps in the almost 90's today, that i think on Christmas. but as i was reading 'Glory to God in the highest..', i thought to myself 'wow. what an amazing story.' and yet we only really reflect on it once a year.
i spent a little time, trying to remind her what Christmas is and why it is so important to remember the Gift. .all the while thinking to myself, 'forgive me, for not remembering every day.'
today i am thankful for these big reminders in my simple life.
