It's beginning to look like Christmas!

Each year it gets harder for me to get in the Christmas spirit. I believe that the true spirit of Christmas can be found in the eyes of a child. There is a wonder and excitement that is held within their little hearts... and a faith that cannot be matched by years of wisdom.

Children are a piece of heaven on earth... our little ones are so close to God's heart because they've come straight from Him... they're hand-picked, each and every one... and when God lets them enter our lives, it's a reminder to us of how beautiful life is.

I am amazed at God's handiwork and amazing love as I share in the lives of the children I take care of everyday. All too often I get caught up in the stress of life... and I forget how much I can learn from them.

Oh look at me go... bein all sappy and whatnot. I've been feeling quite emotional the last few days. Whether it's the time of year, or hormones or the fact that i'm a stuffer and it's all spilling out now... whatev.

I'll tell ya one thing though. This little boy made my heart melt on Saturday. God is so good to me. Seriously.

What I wouldn't give to have a child like Joshua. He is a complete beauty...

This family found me on craigslist for an ad I posted for Christmas cards. To see the rest of their shoot, go over to the blog.

I'm sure I'll have more blibber blabber to share as the days pass til Christmas... so bear with me. I actually am a very emotional person... I just find that I try not to allow myself to be all that often because it's just too much work! Does anyone know what I mean?!!?!?

I love you just the way you are - sappy and all!!! Would want you any other way!!! :)

I think kids are a trigger point around Christmas time because it gives us a glimpse of how Jesus truly came that day so long ago.
