Worth it

Dear Rachel, Ethan, and Sophie,
Your smiles are worth every mad dash to the overcrowded mall,  every crossed off item on my never ending list, every moment spent searching for the gifts I (too) carefully hid, every extra calorie eaten while baking, every moment spent wrapping in the basement, every bad Christmas movie watched,  every day of controlled holiday chaos, and every prayer lifted in thanks for a true reason to celebrate.

I love you,
