This morning, while the rest of my family slumbers, with just the furry girls and I stirring, I have an overflowing heart, which is shouting to share its joy with all of you. On this Christmas morning we have snow falling from the skies, peace and harmony. It is as much, perhaps more, than anyone could ever want!
Yesterday, a respite in our snowy weather. Truly, we are being watched over. I had been praying for no snow storm on the night we had to drive to the airport, and my prayers were answered. We had a day of sunshine – a day where the morning icy roads became, by the time we drove in to meet Santa, clear and dry. Santa was good to us – he delivered our kids and the husband of the Gracious One on time and happy.
Because too often I have generous or nice impulses but do not follow up with them, when the plane’s crew – all three of them, pilot, copilot and stewardess – came in from the plane, I thanked them for delivering our Christmas presents safely and wished them a Merry Christmas. I hope that made them feel as good as it did me.
Today will be spent with friends and family, sharing warmth, happiness, food and drink. All within walking distance of home! So while I could want more – husband’s health, for instance – I have enough. I have a life full of enough.
I am grateful. I am joyous. I hope you all feel the same!
