On Christmas night I laid in bed unable to sleep because I was lost in thought about all the wonderfulness that I got to experience.
I got some wonderful gifts.
Like this bracelet and bead from Mr. Sarcastic’s family.
And these goodies from Mr. Sarcastic himself.
But that wasn’t the main reason behind my inability to sleep.
Little B also got some great presents.
He got a Kindle from Santa. (Technically Santa got it for me AND Little B.)
And lots of Spiderman goodies.
And even some musical instruments.
But again, that wasn’t the reason behind my sleeplessness.
Why couldn’t I fall asleep?
Because I was in awe of the happiness and contentedness I was feeling.
I got to wake up on Christmas morning and feel and see the magic of the holiday through Little B as he excitedly sat up in bed and said “I wanna see if Santa ate the cookies!!!” I got to see the amazement in his eyes when he saw that Santa did in fact, eat the cookies! I got to watch him open all of his presents and see how excited he was about each and every one of them.
I got to spend some time with Mr. Sarcastic who a year ago was someone I didn’t even know existed but has since made me a happier and better person for knowing him.
I also got the pleasure of spending Christmas Eve with Mr. Sarcastic’s family who has always been so warm and welcoming of Little B and I. We both left their house on Christmas Eve with wonderful gifts but most importantly a feeling of happiness and belonging.
Christmas was definitely very magical this year and I have to say that it’s an amazing feeling to lie in bed unable to sleep because of happiness.
How was your Christmas?
