As part of my December "Be Quiet" goal, I recently spotted this challenge on the SouleMama website and decided to sign up. I think it'll be fun to make time in our somewhat busy December schedule for each of the daily challenges and take photos along the way to remember. This month, Tommy's continuing his tennis lessons and church choir practices and is also adding a night of basketball practice, and although I'm glad he's involved in each of these things, I'm wondering how it will affect our time together during this special month. I'm looking forward to making time each day to be quiet with my family, enjoy something good to eat, and make sure we make the most of our days even when they're busy.
Also wanting to remember this paragraph from Simple Abundance as the December days go by:
"December's gifts - custom, ceremony, celebration, consecration - come to us wrapped up, not in tissue and ribbons, but in cherished memories. This is the month of miracles. The oil that burns for eight days, the royal son born in a stable, the inexplicable return of Light on the longest, darkest night of the year. Where there is Love, there are always miracles. And where there are miracles, there is great joy."
