Encouragement For The Week


Let me not wrap, stack, box, bag, tie, tag, bundle, seal keep Christmas.
Christmas kept is liable to mold.
     Let me give Christmas away, unwrapped, by exuberant armfuls. 
Let me share, dance, live Christmas unpretentiously, merrily, responsibly with overflowing hands, tireless steps and sparkling eyes.

     Christmas given away will stay fresh—even until it comes again."


  1. Can I just say thank you? I love that you are so encouraging to moms, especially young/new/busy moms. Your blog is a breath of fresh air and such an encouraging perspective that is so needed right now in this do-it-all, be-it-all, all-right-now world. I'm grateful for you!

  2. First I want to say I LOVE your way of mothering! I never comment on blogs or even read many other blogs for that matter, but every month or so I will check yours and feel uplifted, thank you!
    I have 5 young children and was wandering if you could do a post sometime about how you keep organized with kids toys. Do you rotate? I try to get rid of things but still feel like it SO hard to keep up with toys not being a complete mess all the time. My three youngest are boys, who play with legos, magnate, cars and what not all the time, I can't keep up with STUFF! My 2 oldestedt are girls and don't have a lot of toys but crafts and junk seem to take over. Any ideas would be so appreciated!
