…time to wrap the presents (he just left with the kids to go “shopping for the dogs”)

…time to immerse myself some more in favorite movies and cuddly girls

…time to feel no guilt about my nose being in a book, and another book, and another book

…time to kneel at the manger, thankful and overwhelmed, again and again

…time to laugh and smile in the morning with paper piled and giggles around

…time to meet his eyes and and know that he’s a gift from God

…time to remember the aunt who won’t be with us this Christmas, but who is still with us, especially when we watch one of our favorite movies

…time to think of birthdays and birthday-inspired reflections

…time to wish you and yours a MERRY CHRISTMAS for all twelve days!  🙂
