Childlike Wonder — reposted

I hope you don’t mind, but I thought I would repost something from 2005. I thought it was important, since I have been a little caught up in “things” this year. Happy holidays.

Childlike Wonder

My youngest slept from 5:30 this afternoon until 9:00. In that time, the oldest and I managed to set up our Christmas tree. It’s a pre-lit tree, so we didn’t have to worry about the lights. The pure joy and wonder on the baby’s face when she saw the Christmas tree was just amazing. I wish I could have captured it on film. And it also makes me stop and think about what Christmas is all about. When I get nervous around all the holiday shopping crowds, and I’m overwhelmed with parties to attend, I’m going to try to stop and remember that precious little smile on her face. And hopefully, I’ll remember what the true meaning of Christmas is.
