I think this is one of my favorite times of this holiday season - Christmas Eve morning. The craziness, noise, hurrying here and there will start soon but right now - dare I even write it? - it's quiet. Cookies are baked, kitchen is clean, presents are wrapped and there's five minutes to sit down and enjoy the peace.
Soon the kids will start to arrive with all their presents, noise and cheer. Sir Nathan will arrive with all his various paraphernalia, noise and absolute glee. Then there will be no time to sit and count blessings, I'll be too busy enjoying them.
My wish for all of you is that you are surrounded by the noise, the confusion, the cheer, the glee and the joy of family & friends. And also that sometime during the next hectic week or so, you'll find time to sit, enjoy the peace and count your blessings too.
