I love the idea of decorating for Christmas with a neutral palette of whites and grays, maybe some natural elements and definitely shiny metallics.
My six year old, however, does not.
“Christmas is not about white and brown,” he declares. “It is about red and green and silver :”
So as much as I would have loved to use the burlap stockings I made and an assortment of wintery white pillows layered on the couch, I had to go with my sweet boy’s wishes.
Because sometimes making a six-year-old’s Christmas feel magical is more important than indulging his momma’s love of white. Lesson learned.
Many blessings to you this Christmas. May you be filled with God’s overflowing love and grace as you celebrate His Son with your loved ones.
