Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone. ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„

This yearโ€™s Christmas tree.

While waiting for my family to awake, I am sitting on the sofa reading and enjoying some quiet time in front of the tree. As I look at what is in front of me, I look forward to the opening of gifts. Not because I want to receive things, but because I enjoy the family camaraderie and the look on my familyโ€™s faces when they open a gift that they will enjoy. We have experienced some wonderful laughter in these moments, as well as some tears. I love Christmas for the family time that we spend together – a time that begins with brunch and then the opening of gifts.

Reading while waiting.

So I wait until all my family are ready. And while I wait I immerse myself in my current read. I look forward to to a relaxing day, even though I will be making Christmas dinner. As it is just the five of us, it is not stressful at all.

Enjoy your day with family and friends.

  1. Merry Christmas! Hope you had a wonderful day and your tree is lovely. I too enjoy traditions of Christmas morning. Even more so now when I realize my children are on the cusp of venturing out on their own and each Christmas morning might be our last all together. I cherish the moments even more.
