I’ve been having lots of surreal moments this holiday season. Moments that flash me back to the pregnancy and I stop in amazement at the life I’m living out with 4 miracles.
Last week it happened when I stepped inside the NICU doors for the first time since we carried our preemies out in their car seats. Last night it was when my 4 little guys participated in their first Christmas program. Had it really been 3 years since I got special permission from Dr. Sumners to attend my nephew’s first Christmas program? It’s hard to believe that much time has lapsed since my borrowed Lazy Boy Bedrest Mobile was transported to the back entry of the church so I could be present for his big debut, not knowing what the next Christmas would hold.
So watching them up there was quite a moment, to say the least. It didn’t bother me the slightest that they didn’t sing or do the motions. You and I both know they know it by heart. All that mattered was they are all here with us now.
It’s the season of miracles.
After the program we celebrated with cookies, friends, and family!
