A few nights ago, my 3-year-old daughter said, “Mommy, you know my best present for Christmas? Being with you.” A few nights before that, my 7-year-old daughter grabbed me, gave me a hug and said, “I love you;” something she never does. It has been a peaceful, happy, relaxed household the past couple of weeks. Minor conflicts but lots of cuddles, laughter and overall love. An overall shift in our way of being as a whole.
