Suffice it to say that today hasn't been my favorite day of all time.
I got some pretty ugly news.
But then it was straight home with like 12 kids (ok, it just SEEMED like twelve, I swear they multiply after school) saying, "mom, mom,mom, mom,mom,mom, moooooooommmmmmmmmm" Then it was off to an exhibit of Christmas Creches. And there it hit me.
This sweet tiny babe that each art piece revered has been through so much worse. His life was filled with temptations and sadness and taunting and yet he held his head high and He was the one who made it all better, as He can for us.
A big reminder that even when things seem so awfully down, they really aren't. And in reality they really aren't. We are so thoroughly blessed as a family, and well prepared. That baby will help us make it through, because he loves me, just like He loves you.
