Merry Christmas from Our Family to Yours!!!
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas season close to everyone you love.
I hope you have joyful and non-eventful travel times and that the kids take looooong naps on the road.
I wish you long first sips of good coffee from a familiar mug while wearing pajamas and socks in your parent’s kitchen.
I hope you find yourself savoring the first bite (and the last!) of something your mama (or mom in law) made.
I hope you get to share meals with your grown-up (or not yet!) siblings, and smirks over the dinner table at inside jokes.
I hope you enjoy waking up next to your spouse a bit later than normal and relishing the vacation days… and hold hands!!!
I hope you stay up late watching slightly cheesy Hallmark movies with your dad–
I hope you take mental photographs of the way your children look on the lap of your grandparents (or theirs.)
I hope you hug soon, hug long, and hug often.
But more than all this, I hope you find some time over the next few days to get alone with God and THANK HIM for this great gift. He has given us so much in this life, But through His SON He has given us SO MUCH MORE.
Even if this season has left you exhausted and stressed and you are just realizing that you think you “missed it” again…
Well, don’t lose heart. It’s not over yet. Let Heaven and Nature SING!!! Repeat the Sounding Joy…
Merry Christmas, dear friend! See you in a few days!!!
(We can talk about all we ATE and share good recipes for Green Smoothies to get us back on track!)
