When I was a young mother to my son and daughter, I was very conscientious of their small eyes watching my actions. I thought I had to be a good example for them, so I tried to do the right thing. Sometimes I failed.
On some very bad mothering days, I failed miserably.
Then, my little boy and sweet daughter grew up.
I grew, too– into an older and wiser adult.
Now I know a few things. Wisdom is priceless. Getting older is not a bad thing at all when you learn some truths in the journey. One truth is this — sometimes it takes a millennial for us to see the light.
See this little card nested in my Christmas tree?
My daughter made this card months ago, but its meaning is so significant to me that I keep it in my kitchen where I can see it several times a day. And what does the message mean to me now in the Christmas season?
We made an intentional effort to simplify Christmas this year. Thanks to a very wise millennial, I think it’s going to be a very good season, and a very good new year.
Love, grace and peace,
