So This Is Christmas

The world has turned full circle again, the shortest day has come and gone and it is officially winter. In the midst of all the chaos, the parties and the ever-increasing amounts of food, we prepare our hearts for the most wonderful celebration of the year.

Last year we were in Missouri hoping for a white Christmas which we didn’t get. This year we are home and keeping our fingers crossed that it won’t be too warm and humid. Today the sky is gloomy and the clouds are hanging low. We will see what tomorrow will bring.

I am on vacation for the next 10 days, with at  least one thousand plans in my head. Too much to do, too little time.

But tomorrow is Christmas. Time to slow down, time to hug loved ones close. Time to sit back and contemplate the reason for the season.

I wish you all a very joyful and peaceful Christmas with your nearest and dearest.
