Still high from the excitement of the Christmas party and the fact that we were having a sleepover at their best friend’s place, the twinions were still up way past their bed time.
Stories, they pleaded, And stories I read.
Just as their sleepy lids were slowly closing, loud bangs and booms could be heard outside.
Throwing all maternal duties and routine out the window, I didn’t think twice about waking up the boys.
“Quick, boys! Fireworks! Fireworks outside!”
Scrambling to the window, it was like Christmas came early.
As they “oohed and aahed” at the sparkling lights and the pretty colours, I could hear one of the boys say, “The fireworks are especially for us”
And I guess that night, it felt as though they were.
When something that beautiful, randomly appears at your window, why wouldn’t you think it’s for nobody else except for you and those immediately around you?
In the lead up to Christmas and the busyness in its preparation, I hope you still manage to do something just for you.
Even it’s a quiet cup of coffee at your favourite cafe or a long soak in the bath with candlelights and a glass of red, do it. It’s important.
Enjoy the week, guys!
