Every Christmas season
a few weeks before the actual day
"I hear the bell."
I am ready to pull out all of my decor and begin
hanging lights and singing Christmas carols.
But for some reason not this year.
I pulled my tree out of the attic after
Thanksgiving! Which never happens
I am a get the tree up Nov 1st kinda girl.
I hung a few lights and wrapped my bushes out front
but it wasn't the same.
There are no ornaments on my tree but one
A special one from my parents that we received
for our 5 year anniversary. But nothing else.
I am just not excited to do it this year.
Every year that goes by I think, next year
next year we will have a baby to celebrate with!
and here we are 3 Christmas's later and still no child of our own.
I hate thinking of the holidays that way, but it's just the harsh truth.
So for this year I will try hard to "hear the bell" when I am
with my family and keep faith that next Christmas
we will have a child of our own to celebrate with.
What about you? Do you hear the bell?
I found a quote on pinterest last night that I am in love with:
IS CLOTHED IN
OF THE FUTURE.
