snuggle your snuggly ones closer.
forget anything you forgot.
embrace all the small moments that make today special.
remember Who loves you most.
don’t let the whole day happen in the kitchen.
the dishes and crumbs can wait.
take a whole bunch of photos.
then put the camera down and be present.
it’s okay if you’re bra-less and smudgy mascara-ed.
christmasy mornings only come once a year.
give lots of kisses.
everyone gets a real hug.
whether it’s quiet and calm
or crazy and completely nuts.
today is for joy. dig deep mama. go get it.
