You Are Awesome! - 4Ms #Musical Christmas

Now I know most of y'all will be traveling to see family or having family come see you. Family - we don't always get along right? But I tell my kids that it's worth trying to love and forgive family because no matter what, they are the ones who will always remember who you are, even after you are dead and gone.

Now it ain't easy forgiving some people. And I've learned that it's easier to forgive some peeps when they are NOT around you. When you have to be around someone every damn day, resentment and hatred can build up more than the fire to forgive.

But for your sake, your peace, your happiness, it is better to try.

Usually they don't even care that you have them up in your heart. Really sometimes they don't even KNOW! So what's the point eh?

But whatever happens. I want to share these videos with you and hope that you will find peace inside, knowing your worth as you go forth into the space and arms of family.

Merry Christmas to you my loves.

  2. Song of the bells has always been my favorite. Those young boys sound like angels. You're other two are very new to me. Thanks for sharing. As far as forgiving and forgetting a never is never learned if you forget what you forgave. My own children can do wrong, but wrong or right they are still my children and I'll always love them even though I may not like them from time to time. Christmas is the season. Christ is the reason. As the Lord is in my heart and I hold Him close I put my children in my heart always for the Lord to protect them and love them.

    1. Oh Dolly! Yes they do so sound like angels!
      And I agree, one should always remember a lesson learned.

      Ahh children. I wonder what my relationship will be like with them as they get older.

      Thanks for sharing Dolly. Merry Christmas!

  12. Beautiful selections! You are right - forgiving people is so much easier when you don't have to be around them every day. But it is so important to try, especially with family.

    Merry Christmas, Callie!
