This is the time of year that all parents see their little ones become stars in the Christmas concerts. From little Johnny wearing a towel on his head playing his role as Joesph, to little Sara who gets to dress up as an angel, each one is a star in their parents eyes.
As my boys move through the grades at school, they have gone from sweetly singing Christmas songs to being in the band (both played the trombone this year). Each year we think we are going to sneak out after they are done, and each year we stay to the end because of the heartwarming pleasure of being together with other proud parents enjoying this special time of year, enjoying our children shining bright.
Enjoy your child's Christmas concert, sit back and feel the emotions, let the singing of your favorite Christmas carols feed your soul. This is the time of year when your children shine and you reconnect with the true meaning of Christmas, that deep in your soul belief in the goodness of mankind.
So, buy those Santa gifts, bake those Christmas treats, surround yourself with family and friends to celebrate the birth of Jesus. I know that's not politically correct anymore, but when you see your little ones, up on stage singing with all their hearts about Christmas, it makes you realize that life is not about being politically correct, it's about being morally right. Most important, life is about being as good a parent to your children as you can be, mostly by just being there for their most important moments, when their star shines brightly.
