Christmas this year was great at the Gareau household. My parents were here. My grandmother was here. My brother and his wife were here with their son. All of us were together. We spent time talking, visiting, and watching the kids play. We attended Christmas Mass together and enjoy each other's company by relaxing in the evenings with a good movie and some beverages. We also exchanged gifts, as many families do, on Christmas morning. Everyone had a great time.
Just as we lovingly choose gifts at Christmas for our loved ones, God chooses us for our children. He knows the perfect match. As He chose Mary to carry Jesus, he chooses us to carry our children. I keep going back to lyrics from a song I love... part of those lyrics say, "Do you wonder as you watch my face......if a wiser one should have had my place..." No. I think I'm right where I'm supposed to be. No one else could be Meagan's mom. This was the plan. This was God's plan for us.
