I'm determined to finish this thing promptly. I'm just not quite sure what promptly means.

Journaling: Today was part one of the first grade gingerbread house holiday party. As a first grade room parent, I got the job of making the assembly frosting the evening before and sending it to school with Kaira. I wanted to be in the classroom to help, but several weeks ago had agreed to trade a work shift with a colleague, not realizing it would put me on duty the day of the party. I felt bad about this, and Kaira did, too. We were also all grieving the sad news of a friend’s parents’ divorce. This December season has brought many ‘hard’ things, and some sad days. I am thankful that the real gift of Christmas--the incarnation of Jesus Christ--is not dependent on us creating any kind of storybook scene or feeling any certain emotions. In fact, he came for the very reason that our world is broken and in need of rescue.
