This year I am especially thankful for the enjoyment of seeing this season through the eyes of Elijah. He is so excited. He is enjoying every moment of this. From decorating the tree & house with Daddy to reading Christmas books to singing Christmas songs with Mommy and looking for Scoot (our elf on the shelf) every morning. He is loving it.
I love this part! He has asked for one main thing from Santa & Santa already has the item, so this momma is excited for Christmas morning.
The main reason I am excited & thankful for this holiday, is the birth of my Lord. We are celebrating Jesus' birthday! Eli & I were talking about it today & he was trying to understand why we give gifts for Jesus' birthday & asking what gift we give Him. Wow! I was humbled.
So, tonight as I write this, I wonder, what gift will you be giving Jesus this year? He continues to bless me over & over again. I want to be sure to give to Him.
Thankful for a renewed meaning of Christmas thru the eyes of a child.
