Christmas is so magical
it's always magical
but this one was extra special
there's something about having a brand new precious baby at Christmas time
I may be a little biased...
but it's true.
reading about Mary's birth in the stable- when your own labor story is still fresh in your mind brings it extra close to home
to think about how I feel about my sweet newborn
how much I loved her immediately
and to think about how Mary must of felt
how much love
how overwhelmed she must have been to have given birth to the son of God
it was special for me
the first time to have that kind of perspective on the Christmas story
there's no place like home for the holidays.
Clara even got to sit on Santa's lap to get her birthday PJ's on Christmas Eve!
she supposedly told Santa she wanted a sibling for Christmas
I told her to try again in a couple years ;)
