Christmas Eve this year will be at home. Much of the holidays is timing; "Who goes where on what day"?
I will have two destinations for tomorrow, the 25th. While this is a major task with a lot of travel involved, it also affords me with one day that can match no other. Non-stop Christmas from morning till night. I sit here writing this evening with my mind buzzing with recollections from my past, and to what will transpire ... I am thankful to know that family members I have not seen in months will be in town.
My computer is by a large window, and it's warm, cozy, and calm. Very quiet! Outside the sun is setting over a frozen cap of snow on the neighbors roof, as the holiday lights flash with ever gaining intensity. My tree is glowing around the corner, and yes ... there are still tings to wrap!
I look at the snow globe above, and envision what is going on in the house, much as I wonder what great things may come to be as presents are opened, and smiles are exchanged. My idea is to return here to this post after the greatest of all days is over to reflect on all events that transpired, and to elaborate on the NEW memories I will carry with me for the rest of my days. I know they will be cherished.
Won't you return here as well, and give your own stories from Christmas 2008? It could be the day after celebrating, or even months down the road. Please leave a comment with your own thoughts and memories, so we call all share them here together.
May your holiday be safe, happy, and full of love.
