Last night we had our Christmas party with the teens. It was actually a heavy night full of hard conversations because truthfully… life happens. Sometimes someone you love passes away. Sometimes someone you love makes terrible choices. And sometimes you just need a hand to hold and an ear to listen. I am thankful that I am able to be part of these girls’ lives. And despite the tears and heartache, there was laughter and silliness. Because while life happens, life also moves on. And being surrounded with people who love you is a great first step.
In other news… Will had a Christmas play earlier this week. It was precious because he got to be Santa!!
A couple of the younger kids started bawling during the play and I have to admit it was kind of hilarious. I mean, they are just so cute and pitiful when they are so sad. Poor kids must’ve been so frightened to be in front of all those strangers.
