Last week as I frantically prepared for Christmas day It dawned on me that I was missing out on what Christmas was really about. I was somewhat ashamed and angry with myself for spending hours in the stores only to return home absolutely exhausted and irritable. This was not me at all.  I enjoy the serenity of the holidays and spending quality time with my family.  Every Christmas morning my family and I gather before opening any presents and talk about what Christmas means to us.  We sing Christmas songs and an elder family member tells the story of the birth of Jesus Christ and the Wise Men.  My favorite part of the day is watching the delighted looks on the faces of the children gathered to hear the story of Jesus Christ.  This is a tradition I have chosen to leave with my children.  Don't get me wrong...the kids (and adults : -) tear open the boxes of presents like the world was going to end :-) Nevertheless, I have established a foundation on which they can build on in the future if they choose to do so.
