I really love a good garland (if you don't believe me, check out my festive festivities board!). The rule my house around Christmas, then go back into hiding for most of the year with occasional appearances for special occasions. But the other day I realized something.
Why should I wait for "special" days to get out the decorations I love so much? Or more importantly, does that mean I'm saying my normal, everydays aren't special? Everyday I wake up, I have life. I have breath. I see the sun. I have a husband who loves me, a baby boy I adore, and a Christ who saved me. Simple as my life is, it is grand and I wouldn't want it any other way.
It's so easy for me to get caught up in and stressed out about things that don't matter. I need to be reminded to step back, celebrate life, and be thankful for what I have. From the cheerios smashed in my carpet to the best baby hugs in the world. How are you celebrating life today?
