May 2012 be a year filled with love. Yes, the love which you receive, but more than that, may it be a year in which you are able to pour out your love, to give your love to the people around you and to the world.
Grace had one final present waiting for her when she got home – the present we have been waiting to give her for a while – her new balance bike.
What would Kim call it? Oh yes…a rookie mistake. Two nights ago I joked with Grace about what songs we could sing instead of Silent Night, “What about Happy Birthday? Or maybe Merry Christmas?”
So what songs are being requested now? Happy Birthday and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Funnily enough Donné and I both independently decided to sing Happy Birthday to Jesus seen as it is Christmas.
Today was the last day in Jeffrey’s Bay – a last swim in the lagoon for the whole family and a whole lot of cleaning. PE for a day tomorrow and then back home on Friday.
The aftermath of present opening.
Grace seemed to like the process of opening the presents a lot. When I asked her what her favourite part of the day was she said, “Running in garden.” It’s what we do with our family that matters more than the things we give.
