Wake Up Wednesday

As I mentioned last week, I'm just going to share some experiences from our Good Deed Advent for the Wake Up Wednesdays in December.

This week we went through all the boys toys and donated a bunch of them.  The boys were pretty willing to do it, which made me really happy.  I've also tried to adjust the challenges as opportunities have come up.

The other day Rex said they were collecting money at school for children who didn't have anything.  He asked if he could have some money to take to school.  Then he said, "Nevermind, Mom.  I have my own money I can give."  He headed upstairs and came down with his earnings.  He took a fair amount of it to school.  I was so proud of him.

There are a billion moments in motherhood when you feel like you're failing, but there are also some sweet moments like this that make you think you just might be doing alright.

Have you had any special Christmas experiences this year?  I would honestly love to hear about them.  Feel free to share them in the comment section.  Thanks for reading.
