After an enormous inward temper tantrum and a sugary binge I worked up enough motivation to get out of the house with the little guy. Half to get myself away from the sweets in the house and half in an attempt to calm my thoughts. I received a CD for Christmas this morning from my hubby of one of my very favorite artists, Kari Jobe. It's a worship CD. I'm very quickly brought back to my senses whenever I put any of her music on. I popped it in the car stereo and off we went. It was naptime so I knew that little Abe would sleep the entire ride.
There's nothing that some good deep breaths, a nice long ride, (with the lowest gas prices we've had in years) some excellent worship music, and sights of nature out the windows won't cure... at least crazy out of wack emotions wise. We dropped a gift by someone, stopped at my moms to deliver a few slices of Christmas cheesecake, and drove to the lake to watch some enormous beautiful waves. I parked the car and let little Abe crawl up in the front seat with me to watch the waves. We rolled down the window for a bit to listen to their magnificent sounds as well. All in all, I'd say that will be a good Christmas memory. Oh, we went out back and blew bubbles for a bit too!
I put bubbles in his stocking.
We're used to very white Christmases around here.
But hey if there's no snow to play in bubbles must be the next best thing, right :)
