What an interesting Christmas break. We were all sick for two weeks. We stayed inside. We slept. We made it to church and celebrated Christmas and the New Year with gratitude and joy, but also with the modesty that comes from feeling so under the weather.We took this photo yesterday on New Year’s Day when we were finally all just well enough to spend several hours walking at Longwood. (Caroline missed the photo as she leapt out of sight.)
As we prepare for school to start again, I’m a little sad Christmas is over. It’s always a little rough jumping back into routine. But it’s time. I’m prepared to flow into the next season. I’m so grateful for all I have and for these amazing children. I intend for 2019 to be filled with joy and abundance.
