Taking Time During the Festive Season
As we rush to attempt to make our baby’s first Christmas and New Year one to remember, we need to realize this is more for ourselves as the parents than it is for our baby. As far as our precious little one is concerned, it is just another day and moment in time.
I realized that to just spend quiet time with my child was worth more than any material gift. To sit with him against my chest breathing deeply was so comforting to us both. To lie down with him on my belly feeling my breath made him giggle with delight.
These simple, present moments I take to find the stillness in our hectic season is the greatest gift of all.
