'If you must look back,do so forgivingly. If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present... gratefully.' -Maya Angelou
Remember our advent calendar, the one we pulled out a couple days late, but still enjoyed for (almost) all 24 days before Christmas.
Remember our tree, the one you boys took turns placing the star on top of (technically a snowflake), & all the lights & snowflakes you helped hang on it.
Remember the day we got twister, how twisted up you three got with one another, resulting in deep belly laughs.
Remember your camera, Ry, that you loved to tote around with you, & then one day we found it sitting on the birdhouse. We weren't sure how long it sat in the weather, but we were certain it was no longer functioning.
Remember when our Elf on the Shelf didn't return. Instead, we were visited by this sweet little Elf of Kindness.
