Learning and Living

...that I've grown in some areas this year...that we all have the same 24 hours a day...that being right isn't always the most important thing...that the newborn stage only lasts for about a month...what motivates each child to get schoolwork done in a timely, non-grumpy manner...that we usually don't know what a person is going through on the inside by viewing their outward actions...that marriage is beautiful when you work as a team...that each child is unique.

Living... cuddles on the couch with homemade cocoa...exercising to Dino Christmas music to incorporate fitness, teach my children rhythm and dispel bad smiles and coos...reading The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey to the kids again and trying not to cry because my husband is just waiting for me to...ordering the kids' Christmas presents online and escaping the hectic stores and cold weather...home-roasted coffee in the French press...playing Christmas music on the piano...meeting an old acquaintance at Wal-Mart who wants to turn her life around before her baby is born in two weeks...decorating our tree with a general color theme and my collection of kids' photo ornaments.
