Just Enough

Dear Self,

Today was a success! To see the bright, overjoyed smiles on my daughter’s faces was totally worth it. As a single mother, I think that I can be a little hard on myself this time of year. I think the pressure and stress comes from the part of me that feels like I need to show my girls twice the love, give twice the hugs, and shower them with twice the gifts just to make up for the absence of their father’s.  Even though my girls don’t always show how much they miss the presence of their father’s,  their father’s presence is always needed. I worked really hard this year to make sure that my kids got what their hearts desired and my determination to keep that mojo going is at an all time high. This year has made me realize one thing and that is…no matter what state of mind I am in and no matter what I go through I pray that the joy of Christmas and the meaning of Jesus will always and forever be just enough.
