Children have such a way of reminding us of what's really important--I've heard lots of personal examples of this from my friends and family lately. Lucky for me, I had an experience like that in my own home today. The introspection that Christmas creates allowed me see this precious moment for more than what it first appeared to be. Several years ago, I bought a Fisher-Price Nativity set. Best Holiday purchase I have ever made. We have several Nativities in our home, but none that the children were allowed to touch. It was so important to Tony and I that our family had the chance to play with and act out the story that is so central to what be know and believe about our Savior. I keep it low enough so they don't even need to ask to play with it. This is how I found it today.
I love how the Care Bear and the jolly old man himself got in on the Adoration. Wish we could all be so quick to remember the true meaning of Christmas.
