I learned a lot this Christmas. I learned things don’t always turn out like you imagine they will.
And that you may have to open the gifts for a sick little one who doesn’t feel like doing it herself. And that’s okay.
I learned that no matter how big a boy gets, he still enjoys playing with toys and will jump at the chance to put a transformer together to “help” a child.
I learned, if you give us an iPad and a Photo Booth App, we will be entertained for hours.
I learned to make sure to turn off the TV before taking random photos on Christmas morning.
I learned the only way to get in the picture is to ask someone to take it. And that when looking back at the pictures I can get a glimpse into my heart. I can see my joy as I sit quietly soaking in my family around me.
Hand off YOUR camera. Make that one of YOUR New Years Resolutions.
And I learned that toy parts have gotten smaller over the years and I will still be searching for missing pieces until next Christmas.
And I learned that these are the moments that make life… pretty amazing.
