... this is why winter was invented."
This New Year's Eve as the clock stuck midnight we prayed.
"for Anna's heart to heal a little bit more this year in our love."
"for Abigail's esophagus to heal a little bit more this year."
"for God to use me in a mighty way as a mother."
On New Year's Day we had a whole day of family games, watched The Snowman, went sledding, and were just together.
I was sad this morning sending them off to school. So I decided to make breakfast cozy and pretty. It made me smile on this very cold January morning.
I like fresh starts. As simple as a fresh start in my kitchen to a fresh start in our family schedule.
So off they went to school. Abigail saw a friend who called out to her. She liked that.
Anna hated that I made her wear her hat. Somehow that makes me smile too.
January, with your sparkling snow on the ground, your bright but cold sunshine... I like you.
