oh what a day yesterday was. i am grateful that i lived and that my children lived and that it's a new day. last night i was grateful to go to the kids christmas concert. it was such a tender mercy that the lord knew i needed. as i sat listening to the festive music i was able to think of all the wonderful blessings i have. and even though it seems, at times, that those blessings bring me the most pain and heartache sometimes...i do love them. i do. and no matter what i am feeling at certain moments in the day...anger, rage, loss of control...and the thoughts that come with those moments...i love my blessings. thank you, b for reminding me of that.
the kids were so cute tonight. k, a, and m sang 3 songs each with their classes and i was so happy to see them smiling and waving to me in the audience. the kindergarteners sang away in a manger first.
they were so cute and all dressed up in their best christmas attire.
m loved singing and then eventually watching k and a.
a got to stand next to his best friend, timothy. they were so cute too.
they all made me teary eyed! what a wonderful way to end a very difficult day.
SNOW? 'i thought i didn't snow in the desert?', one of the kids asked. me too! but here it is and i got to shovel the driveway. it's a lot bigger than the one in utah. i liked that one much better.
and this is the beautiful house we get to look at everytime we look out our front door. i love it.
now it's beginning to 'feel' a lot like christmas.
