Feeling like a child again....

I feel like a kid again, my stomach doing flip-flops, daydreaming about coming events, imagining all the fun times the gatherings will bring. I absolutely love this time of year. I am filled with joy and peace. As I anticipate next week with all the eagerness of a child, I look forward to the love and the closeness with friends and family and the memories being built with each tick of the clock.
It passes by too quickly and I want to savor each moment. I am so blessed to be surrounded by love all around me, I will remember to pray for those who are hurting and alone and pray that I can be a blessing in return.
As the next week draws closer I want to continually take the time not to get caught up in the busyness of it all but remember to continually anticipate the coming week like that of a child and
never forget the reason
for it all
a cute little babe, who came for you and for me, so we may
in our hearts
for all eternity!!

Enjoy the countdown everyone, blessings to you all!!!
