For the third year now, Selby delivered the buns, along with ginger cookies and coffee, to her daddy, and then to me, in bed. This year, she had a helper for the first time - Sage walked behind her, carrying a small lantern and signing along.
The beauty of my girls bringing their soft, glowing lights into our dark room, and singing sweetly, was overwhelmingly powerful. This year - more than ever - I treasure the light and joy they bring to my life. I'm holding them a little closer, and counting my blessings every day.
