Many of us engage in writing about our awesome kids, especially this time of year. Photos go on Facebook sharing accomplishments or funny moments. Christmas or year-end letters go to close friends and family telling of milestones achieved or special thoughts about our children.
It’s good to take time to celebrate our kids, whether we have our own children, or other exceptional children (students, nieces or nephews, neighbors, etc.) in our lives.
When my son asked me the other day, “What would you like for Christmas, Mom? What would be most special thing for you?” my answer was, “To have all of us under one roof for a time, to just enjoy being together!”
My wish for all of you is that you would also have time to celebrate and enjoy the awesome kids in your life. It’s been my experience that they grow up all too soon!
P.S. My awesome kids are Ben (age 19 in his first year of college), Nathan (age 16, in his third year of high school), Jenae (age 11 in 6th grade), and Noah (age 2 and wishing he was also in school). Our newest family member is kitty Jazz.
