Christmas love

This time last year I was lying in bed recuperating from birthing our beautiful baby girl. Since a little before the birth that took place in our home, on our incredibly uncomfortable, navy blue Ikea couch I've thought a lot about Mary. The journey she made whilst heavy with child. Being far from home and no doubt feeling very out of place.

Our Christmas tree had a few gifts under it although none were purchased by us. We spent the day (the week, the month!) watching our newborn and feeling incredibly peaceful. Christmas changed last year.

Our tree this year has less under it than last year and yet we've never felt Christmas more.

Children can do that. They make every day feel like Christmas. Finding joy in everything is what they do best.
