I initially was going to share cute ways to wrap presents for your special someone this year. However, this has been my schedule as of lately:
12 hours of the Christmas Story
11 last minute check outs
10 o’clock Mass that I Never made
9 dollars overdraft
8 sad memories
7 un-answered messages
6 exhausting headaches
5 alarms of ringing
4 chocolate doughnuts
3 am wake up calls asking if we can open presents
2 dogs a barking
A mother who needs me.
I was able to manage to take a few pictures of some great wrapping ideas for next year. I believe everything done needs to have a special touch added. I love the idea of turning the wrapping paper inside out and coloring on it for your children. It really makes them feel like they have a one of a kind gift from Santa.
Of course, it is all of the in-between moments that can’t be captured or colored on, that matter more. As night falls and as Christmas is about to close. I can’t help to pray… “lord, thank you for today and please let me have another Christmas with my mom.
