And then I think about Mary. How did she do it? She was a new Mommy just like me --- lacking sleep, nursing, oohing and ahhing over every smile and giggle --- and, yet, her baby boy was the Savior of the world. She loved him just like I love my little man, but knew that her Son would one day die to save us all. I can't imagine how she did it, but am so thankful that she did!
So, Merry Christmas to you all --- and may you find the true meaning of Christmas to be even more real this year!
