Slice of Life Stories hosted
This Christmas our family enjoyed time together celebrating the joy of Jesus' birth.
Yet this Christmas was a little different than in years past.
This Christmas was also about our two one-and-a-half year old daughters.
This Christmas we cherished the magic of Santa Claus.
Letters written, cookies shared, reindeer food sprinkled outside.
This Christmas we continued old traditions shared from our families,
and began new traditions that will continue for Christmases to come.
This Christmas we delighted in observing the excitement and wonder of our girls,
memories of pure happiness and joy captured in our hearts and minds forever.
However, this Christmas there was one little surprise for me under the tree.
This Christmas I was in awe and in absolute disbelief.
This Christmas I unwrapped a gift just for me with no expectations.
I opened the plain brown box and inside was a book.
This Christmas I was given a gift that was no ordinary book.
It was of a book of my slices. A 'published' compilation of my words.
This Christmas I felt like a kid again - a reminder that I believe in
the magic, the thoughtfulness, the excitement.
Thank you Mom and Dad
for sharing the magic and excitement of Christmas!
