I remember that special feeling I used to get on Christmas eve as a small child. The butterflies in my tummy, waiting with excitement for Christmas morning and all the magic that it would bring. Here I am, Christmas eve in my 50th year, and I am experiencing all that excitement again! As I was wrapping the gifts for the boys and placing them under the tree, singing Christmas carols to myself and feeling so much love in my heart and spirit I realized..."I am so blessed!" We are so blessed. How amazing is this?
"Eeeeeee!" <---that is a mama squeal of joy! :)
