The Christmas cards are coming! The Christmas cards are coming!
This time of year is amazing – my favorite – but certain parts can be difficult to navigate. Soon our mailboxes will be full of glossy Christmas cards with beautiful families in coordinated outfits, we’ll be reading Christmas letters about new babies, new jobs, and new homes, and our social media feeds will showcase our friends’ fabulous winter fun, spectacularly decorated living rooms, and gift-giving abundance.
Sometimes we see these things and then look around at our own very normal (and messy) lives and wonder, “What is wrong with my family? Why did we get the short end of the stick?”
