Christmas blessings

Its officially Christmas in the Nielson home.
My children call to be picked up from school in the afternoon.
I am so eager to pick them up, bring them home, and shut the door.
I just want them home.
I want them to feel comfortable and safe and with me-
not that they are in any harm elsewhere,
but I just like knowing where they are and what they are doing.

The children helped me decorate for the Holidays.
Each child has a personal touch in a corner or somewhere in our home.
They are so proud- and I am too!

My body is super exhausted all the time,
and my stomach is stretching bigger and bigger.
As you may or may not know, burns don't stretch, so the parts of my
stomach where I was burned hurt. Its becoming uncomfortable and itchy.
I keep telling myself I can do this- I have been through far worse.
Besides, I get something out of this- not just bandages and pain:
A baby.
I am thrilled. I feel so blessed and grateful everyday.
I truly am a blessed woman with an amazing family and body.

Chris Clark directed.
