Reason for the Season

Today we had a long day of decorating for Christmas and getting the house in order. Shayne is traveling a lot for work and since I can't really lift anything, we only had today to get all the decorations out of the attic, put out, and empty boxes put back up. It didn't seem like I was going to be able to get my part done and I was really overwhelmed. In the midst of my frustration, Cole asks me to come upstairs for a "surprise." I put him off for a few hours until finally, in the dark playroom, I sit down and he pushes the button on his Fisher Price nativity set and it shines a light on the baby Jesus. "Isn't that the best surprise you've ever seen?" he asks. Indeed, it is! Thank you my sweet boy for reminding Mommy what's important!
