As my life changes, as our son gets older and is on the brink of independence, Christmas morning is a most precious gift to me. No matter what the packages contained, that it was my husband and my son with me around the tree with a warming fire in the hearth and classic Christmas carols on the background, my joy is complete.
Christmas Eve and the continuing family celebrations give me strength, warmth and sustenance.
The Christ child gives me peace and hope that someday I will see my son in heaven and be with Him forever.
To those of you I know and to those of you who I may never meet, peace and joy today and always from my house to yours.
