Today I have the spirit of Christmas in my heart.
I awoke with 2 cats curled against me, purring.
I went to make coffee, greeted by 3 rambunctious dogs, woofing and snuffling eager to see me.
Drinking the coffee and chatting with a friend in NY got me laughing so hard I cried. That is his gift to me, sharing puns and jokes and the humor in every situation.
A quick check on Facebook to read Season Greetings and share them with far away friends.
The sun is shining and it is a weirdly temperate day.
Soon I will finish the gift wrapping and make the ubiquitous Jello Salad for tomorrow's dinner with my family.
Christmas Eve feels like HOPE today. Christmas is about REBIRTH. And this year I embrace it!
I feel so incredibly blessed right now, happier than I have been in years.
I love the Wonder of the Season and all that it brings.
Merry Christmas to one and all!
