I looked at the calendar this morning and realized that it’s only 5 months to Christmas. I’m not usually one for countdowns, but this year, it’s bugging me. I have so many projects on the go right now and there’s so much I want to accomplish… and it feels like I’m running as fast as I can but that I simply can’t keep up or get ahead of the game! I also started to wonder, how many other moms and dads are feeling the same way I am? Feeling like you’re constantly working but not getting to where you want to be fast enough? Struggling with what to do for your kids when they already have more toys than they could ever possibly play with? For most of us, we live very abundantly. Most of us have kids who are well fed, well clothed and healthy. We are lucky.
Then I got to thinking about what I cherish from my childhood and it’s photographs. Photos of me with my siblings, with my parents (which are few and far between), with my extended family, with my friends. I love to look at these and remember. Remember the fun times, the laughter and how carefree we all were. I don’t know what I would do without these photographs and I wish I had more with my parents in them.
Then I thought, what better gift to give to your kids this year, than the gift of yourself? A moment in time, that they will cherish when they are older.
