The past month has been great for me. Speaking in regards to my adult life, I feel like I enjoyed the Holidays more than usual. Yes, of course it was busy and time always keeps moving. But my goal this year was to keep it simple. The Husband and I decided earlier this year that we would stay close to home during Christmas, especially since we had a whirlwind Thanksgiving with family in MN. I didn’t do a lot of the running around type preparations this year, but I did decorate, cook and even bought a couple gifts. I wanted to spend most of my energy on others, not just focused on myself. I loved having friends over, spending time with family and church friends.

At Real Church we did an event called Joy To The D. We gathered new toys, and organized a toy store where parents could come and pick out a free gift for each child. While they were busy shopping, getting their gifts wrapped and enjoy cocoa. prayer and conversation….their kids were doing crafts, hearing the Christmas Story and having a blast in our kids ministry. We also got to take Christmas to a handful of families in Detroit who needed some extra help this winter. All in all I loved it. Personally and as a Christians it’s so easy to get caught up in my holiday, my gifts, my money. This was a perfect outlet to give, and promote generosity. Families were really blessed, and we were able to touch over 350 families in our city! What a way to head into Christmas.

In our house we had decided that we wouldn’t exchanged presents, but last minute I changed the rules and surprised Mohan with a handheld espresso machine! It was something we discovered this past summer while on vacation in Seattle, and I knew he’d love it.  My hope was that he’d be as excited as a kid getting a new toy on Christmas.  Supplies!! He was. Since then he’s been making espresso at least once a day. Oh my, what have I done?!  I can’t complain though, I get wonderful yummy Americanos at home!!

Some of the best times were the quiet times around the house, sitting by the tree, sipping a coffee, thinking, reading, just enjoying every blessing around me. I spent a lot more time at home than expected, only because the Babychild came down with a cold/flu and was pretty miserable for almost a week.  He turned one right before Christmas, and I think he knows it :)  He is changing at an unbelievable pace. I used to keep a journal where I would record as many of his little milestones as I could. I just can’t keep up with him these days. He has no problem keeping up with me though, he loves to be in the kitchen, watching and “helping”. He got a toy broom for his birthday, he loves to sweep and sift through cabinets of course. Lately he’s on a quest to eat an entire banana in one sitting. He finally succeeded yesterday. He is such a joy. If I begin to think of all the lessons I’ve learned just from being a parent, it’s unbelievable.

I’m so thankful for this time as a mom, and a wife. I’m overwhelmed and overjoyed by the people close to me. This year it was people that made my holidays beautiful. My goal this year is to be present in life, and to put others first.  Thanks friends for reading and sticking with me.

          although internet sites we all backlink to beneath are generally substantially certainly not connected in order to ours, we all really feel they’re actually well worth a spin through, therefore use a look

          Thanks for the reply, Scott. Main concern is being able to download the list if I were to ever go to another type of notification system. Also, on the add/remove, I just moved my blog to self-hosted and I wanted to import addresses from an old email list server to jetpack. No can do.

        I agree, look at all the sharp aliased edges in the ps3 version, then look at those same spots on the 360 version, they look softer but not in the anti-aliased way, in a blurry up-sampled way.I think that’s in part why the motion blur looks more pronounced on the 360 version, b/c the entire image is softer.VN:F [1.9.17_1161](from 0 votes)

          I couldn’t agree with you more! Over at Todaysmower I changed from a &#;&;08what2#82172s best” rating this year to a “what’s best for you” There are a few products on the market that no one should buy, but in most cases every product is made for a specific buyer. It’s up to bloggers like us to help our readers decide what is best for them…not what we think is best for our own toolbox.

        I’ll definitely look you up if I ever get there! The headstone in “The Royal Tenenbaums” reads: “Died tragically rescuing his family from the wreckage of a destroyed sinking battleship” (maybe not an exact quote, but at least pretty close). It’s a GREAT movie. :)

        Footloose i na Uskrs!…One more thing – go over your notes the evening before you preach, and again about 15 minutes to an hour before you actually deliver the message. You will be so familiar with your sermon that you will find yourself glancing at the highlighted portions …

        What kind of farm do your parents have? Looks like some serious timber. Love those silvery trees against the clear blue shies.Lots of winter illnesses going around. Hope you get to rest and recover over the weekend.

        Belle sortie encore de M. Claude Allègre en marge de ce sommet … On a vraiment l’impression qu’il nous sort une ou deux petites formules « choc » pour pouvoir exister …Quant au Sommet en lui-même, j’sais pas si ça fait vraiment avancer les choses … Scepticisme …

        Finfin tavle! :-)Og når det gjelder den House Doctor-lampa, så gir den veldig godt lys. Kjøpte den på Home&Cottage, og de har ganske lang deponering. Så da kan man jo prøve seg frem og heller levere tilbake hvis den ikke fungerer.
