Starting traditions with my children has been one of the greatest healing balms in my life. As I make memories with them, I somehow let go of bad ones that I have experienced. The home that my children are growing up in is far from anything like the home I was living in at their age. So God has given me the ability to be creative with my children by creating traditions with them that will last a lifetime. While doing so, a part of me is healed every single time.
I do it at Christmas with Pajamas! For Josiah's first Christmas, I decided that we would all have Christmas pajamas. For Mommy and Daddy it may be something as simple as a Christmas t-shirt and flannel pants. But, for Josiah it was a pajama set! I must say that the cutest baby ever is one in pajamas! So every year I go to Old Navy way in advance in order to get the first picking for Christmas pajamas. Apparently many moms have made Christmas Pajamas a high priority in the lives of their children because this year, the ones I wanted for Josiah were all out in his size! Even OldNavy.com were out of the 4T size I needed! So the gracious customer service lady that I found to call through the website found me the pair and size I needed! The Lewisville store had twenty in a size 4T so they shipped me a pair UPS and they came this morning!! Now both of my babies have their Christmas Pj's!
Let the healing begin!
