So last night was our second date out without our little girl. It was fun. We went out to the mall and shopped around but didn't buy anything. Then we used a Chick fil a gift card that we got for Christmas and had some yummy dinner. Then we went home and relaxed for a little while.
I realize how much I'm changing. Being a mom is pretty much everything I dreamed but more. I love my little girl more than I ever thought possible. Her smiles and giggles bring tears to my eyes everyday cause it makes me so happy and I don't want the time to pass so fast. A lot of parents want to get to the next stage with their children but I just want to take advantage of every moment I have with her even when it's not fun. But in my changing I see how ridiculous materialistic things are. Like people thinking that they have to have a movie channel of movies they never watch and expensive cars. I watched this show called Hoarders and it makes me sick that people have these disorders of being so attached to their stuff. People in foreign countries would be sick over the attachment that takes place. I would love to see these people taken from their homes and put in a destitute third world country for 2 months and see what happens to their "disease" or disorder.
To everyone reading this I say to be intentional with your life. Spend time with friends and family. Teach your children and show them love. When you're tired after work think about the hours you're going to spend in front of the TV and spend them with the Lord instead or your family.
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas (according to the church calendar it is a 12 day celebration that ends on January 6th) and a Happy New Year!
