It is Christmas Eve. We have been to the Christmas Eve service in the park. A warm fire, great fellowship and good music surrounded by friends and family.
When this message goes live, the little ones will be arguing about having to go to bed, wanting one more drink and singing Christmas carols to put themselves to sleep.
Once I am convinced the door is shut for the night, I will pull out the special things I have finished this week. I will sit beneath the tree and wrap the final presents. When I am finished, I will inspect it one last time from the couch. Isn’t it pretty?
There, I will snuggle up on the couch with a cup of eggnog…with a smidgen of cognac, to listen to soft music and contemplate the wonder of Christmas.
From our family to yours, have a very Merry Christmas filled with joy and love.
Bear, Red, Big V, T Man, Middle V, Little V, Little Bear, Cash and all the ones away from home this holiday
