Merry Christmas wishes…

Hope everyone has a merry and wonderful Christmas day! It feels like the hustle and bustle of the holidays slows down after Christmas eve and the actual Christmas day.

Wishing everyone takes the time to sleep in, drink hot cocoa, love each other, and savor the last bit of Christmas lights and fun.

Also, thank you for sending me your encouraging thoughts and comments after last night’s post. Having this cold for days has put me in a funk with less patience, thinking negatively, and getting irritated too quickly. I did have that mini discussion with Elliot today: I reminded him that I don’t willfully try to make his life miserable by telling him to do things. As we were talking, I realized my word choice of “telling” and that made me realize that I need to do less telling. We need to work as a team and that I will be more mindful to have more patience and be less frustrated.

It’s hard to have these talks, but once we do it creates space for peace at home. Whew, glad we had that talk.

And of course this holiday season:

Happy birthday to Jesus!!

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. Thank you! Our Christmas is pretty mellow with this cold. It inevitably slows me down, but it’s nice that nothing is on the agenda. Just staying home. Yes, doesn’t it seem that the busyness phases out. Happy about that…too much shopping lures. I didn’t know I needed so many things until I saw them. lol
      I hope you are having a good day and a memorable Christmas. Happy new year and take care!
