Merry Christmas to you and yours!
I have a simple wish for you:
It is that you will be able to feel the love and joy that are around you now. Even if everything isn’t perfect. Even if things are undone. Even if money is tight.
As a young mother, it’s all too easy to become exhausted during this season!
I know, I did it a lot.
And sometimes, I was so tired and carrying such heavy emotional burdens, that I couldn’t feel.
Sometimes I went through the motions of preparing for the holiday, but often my feelings were numbed by fatigue and heaviness.
I know that you may be struggling to find a balance between expectations and finances and energy and sometimes complicated family circumstances.
If so, I pray that you will be able to have moments of reprieve and grace, when you can allow yourself to tune into the love you have for your children, your spouse and for God.
And may you be renewed in those moments, and given clarity concerning what you can do to simplify your expectations and care for your body.
God bless you for all you give to others every day of the year!
