Finding the meaning of Christmas again comes in the form of our children. This year, I had the pleasure of watching my children not open their gifts from Santa or Mama and Papa, but of each other. Their first and greatest desire, even after seeing what was waiting for them, was to instead give the gifts they had chosen for each other and for us.
I could hardly believe my eyes.
Some gifts were bought with their own money, and some were made with many hours at school, during art class and on their own down time at home. I couldn’t help but cry when they hugged each other after they opened their treasures – a Christmas miracle!!
If you have little ones, you know that Christmas can be very different. What’s important during the holidays with man guests and visits, is to remember what is important to your little family. Embrace the changes and make them work for you. I wrote some tips and tricks to survive the holidays with little ones over at Omaiki.com, entitled, Christmas with Children. Consider this piece a hug to your days ahead in the holidays.
Wishing you health and happiness during the holidays and always!
