Surprised by Christmas


Can you think of a time you have been utterly seized by emotion? A time you found yourself swept away, awestruck, humbled, shocked? Whether it be the game winning shot, walking down the aisle at your wedding, the death of a loved one, or the birth of new life, we have all experienced moments when we have felt overcome by the feelings raging inside of us.

We all know women tend to be more creatures of emotion than men. Apparently my DNA didn’t get that message. The older I get the more emotional I become, but I am still sorely lacking in that department compared to the average woman. I don’t often tear up and get weepy. I operate much more by logic than emotion on most days.

Imagine my surprise then, when one year in the midst of my Christmas decorating of all things, tears fell rapid and free.

Wishing you many blessings over the coming weeks leading up to the celebration of the birth of the hero of all heroes.
