I am absorbing as much magic as I can this holiday season. Appreciating the little moments. So if I'm not here as often, I hope you will understand. My little girl is transforming into a big girl before my eyes. At only nine, I know she still has a lot of childhood left but the little kid stuff, well I see that ebbing away. Each day, as another Advent Activity calendar door creaks open, I feel a tiny loss. Will she want to see Santa next year? How long before she doesn't have time to craft and bake with me anymore?
I know these things will be replaced by different activities and joys and I will love them too, but I can't help but want to hold onto these days for just a little longer. So I'm savoring each moment. Taking a breath. Putting aside things I "should" do, to make time to watch life unfold, minute by minute. I'm hoping your moments are as merry and bright as mine are.
