December has been an experiment in simplification for me this year. What is typically a time dominated by holiday to-do lists, social overcommitments, and other seasonal stressors, has been refreshingly slow – at times even uncomfortably so. Choosing to quiet my soul and reduce my obligations has opened up margin and energy for me to truly focus on the real spirit of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ.

This realignment is especially important to me given this is Beckett’s first Christmas with any true awareness. I am setting the tone for her experience. Any future expectations she carries around the holidays are being built now. This motherhood deal is huge responsibility. But it’s also a beautiful gift of grace. Without her little eyes looking to me, it would be easy to plow ahead on the same trajectory, focused on materialism, busyness and self-glorification. She’s such a gentle reminder to reprioritize.

Christmas-time with a child, a daughter, has been the best gift in and of itself. Whether it’s simply sharing a hot chocolate, singing silly Christmas carols, or window shopping in our matching winter white, it’s a great reminder, seeing all of the wonder through for her eyes for the first time.
