I am so grateful for tonight-Ladies night out to hear Shauna Niequist (an author I love).
Her message to think deeply about how I live this Christmas season was just what I needed to hear. Encouragement to rethink hospitality and my home and what this reflects about my heart. A challenge to change or make this time of year meaningful in a way that reflect my values. When put that way, I remember how much I really love Christmas and that I am being given an opportunity to create traditions with my family.
Plus, who doesn’t love autographed copies of books worn well from reading.
I have all three copies, but did pick up some extras tonight for ladies I love. Believe me when I say I don’t have one I would recommend over the others. Read all three.
That’s my classroom on Saturday.
I gave my first final and am wrapping up my first semester as a part-time college professor. I have loved my students and their age range and native languages and feedback and appreciation.
I won’t lie about being thrilled to have Saturday mornings with my family for the next 9 weeks. This sixth day of work has kicked my butt and I am ready for winter break already. I’ve got ten days left and counting.
A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.
I have a house full of folks who want it to be Christmas.Our oldest has waited over a month to start this:Happy December!
