Even in a year like no other, Jenna Bush Hager has found a way to focus on "all things bright and beautiful."
Per tradition, the Today star recently shared her family's 2020 Christmas card on the show, pointing out that the photos were shot "in the midst of the pandemic." The front of the card puts her adorable family of five on display, including daughters Mila (7) and Poppy Louise (5), and son Hal (16 months). "This is really quintessential everybody. There's a book, people are barefoot, mouth open wide," her co-anchor Hoda Kotb joked.
While Jenna opted for a punny message on last year's card ("Happy Hal-i-days"), she went for something more heartfelt this time around. The back of the card features a quote from a popular Christian hymn, "All Things Bright and Beautiful." "All creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all," it reads.
Even more special, the hymn that Jenna chose is actually Poppy's favorite. "It felt appropriate this year," Jenna told Hoda on the show.
Fans flooded the comments section on Instagram with sweet messages for Jenna and her family.
"Love your Christmas card and your daughter’s favorite hymn at church written on the card. You have a way with connecting the small dots and making a beautiful tapestry out of all that you do in life with purpose and true meaning behind living with your family. ❤️☃️🎄🎁❤️"
"I just love your sweet soul and down to earth person you are Merry Christmas to you and your family 🙏🙏"
"I needed to hear that message....thank you❤️"
Like many others, Jenna revealed that her family will be celebrating the holidays away from loved ones this year. Although she will miss out on her typical Texas Christmas with her parents and sister, she told Today viewers that she's finding ways to embrace all that season brings, including hanging the needlepoint stockings that her grandmother made and "watching the magic" in her kid's eyes on Christmas morning — a nice reminder for us all.
