Today was a wonderful day spent with family. We began by cooking breakfast together. Homemade biscuits with honey and molasses from our local farmer’s market and scrambled eggs with melted cheese. Ummm, I could get hungry again just thinking about it.
We turned on the Christmas music station on satellite, and gathered our Christmas lights from the attic. A good part of the morning was filled with testing of the lights and replacing of old bulbs. What could have been an onerous task was made enjoyable by the fact that we were all working together as a family and just enjoying spending time with one another. It didn’t matter really what we were doing, only that we were together while doing it.
My in-law’s came by, and we made the trip over to our local mega mall. This, too, was enjoyable. Yes, the place was quite packed with people, but the sights and sounds were just fun. The beautiful decorations and music were a veritable treat.
Dinner at a local restaurant on the way home, and I now sit here in front of my computer feeling tired but quite contented.
It truly is the little things sometimes.
It is my prayer for myself as well as each of you reading this that there will be many more days like this during the busy holiday season rather than the stress that can so easily overcome us this time of year.
And no, I haven’t forgotten that we haven’t celebrated Thanksgiving yet. More on that tomorrow.
