Mary, Did You Know?

I love Christmas! The snow, the shopping, the decorating, the family gatherings, the Christmas lights, the list goes on. I just love it! And now with my own children to share in the joy of the season, I love it even more. I am so excited to see Drew and his big Sister's face on Christmas morning! I think that Santa is definitely going to be making a stop at our house.

I turn my car stereo to the 24 hour Christmas music station on Thanksgiving Day, and it stays on that dial until Christmas day. I think I know just about every version of every Christmas song out there! There's one song in particular that leaves me with tears streaming down my face at least a couple of times a day. I can not listen to it without crying. "Mary, Did You Know?" It reminds me of the reason for the season, but this last year it has taken on new meaning.

God has given us our miracle now and not a day goes by without me giving thanks for the gift we have been given. Not a single day.

There are still days when I stop to think about all that has happened in the last year. Sometimes I can't believe that Drew can now hear. He. Can. Hear. He can hear me tell him that I love him. What a wonderful world we live in.

Thank you!
