Oh Christmas Tree...

Tonight we decorated the Christmas tree with the boys. It was a very good night. My son was in good spirits, even inspired to write a story that he later read to us as we drank hot chocolate around our pretty tree. It was a sweet moment to feel so normal as a family. I could tell that everyone was feeling the good spirits, both of the younger brothers kept commenting on what a wonderful night it was.

This past week, we saw a lot of impulsive behavior and irritability, but tonight, it was just our boy, filled with a calm, happy spirit.

The joy continues as I look forward to next week when we meet with our new Psychiatrist, the one we were praying to get (yay!). We have an appointment with him on Wednesday night, followed by an appointment with a new therapist the following Monday, I’m feeling optimistic about it all.

As for tomorrow, my middle child (8 years old) will be helping to give communion to our church, along the side of our pastor. My son has showed an interested in wanting to be a pastor and start his own church someday. So after meeting with our pastor to learn about what he does day to day in his service to the church, they decided it would be a special experience for our son to help serve communion. I have a feeling that I’m going to need a tissue, because this Mama Bear is going to shed a few proud tears tomorrow morning.

Tis the season to be jolly!
