When we watched this year's Light the World video our kids were completely attentive and our home was filled with such a sweet spirit. The idea of reaching out to serve others specifically during December is a wonderful one and easily focuses us on the true meaning of Christmas.
As we were setting up our decor, the kids were completely in awe of our balding, 10+ year old hand me down tree, the simplest of stockings, advent calendar I grew up with and our three piece nativity set. It was such an important lesson to sit back and notice that kids don't care, and to adopt that mentality ourselves. That what we have doesn't matter but what's in our heart does.
We can't wait to share the magic of the season with M&M and hope by reaching out to others we can come closer as a family.
