Good morning and Merry Christmas! It’s about twenty til’ eight at the moment and my wonderful body clock woke me up about 10 minutes ago. Less than 5 years ago I would have had problems sleeping last night and ended up waking my sister and parents up around 3:40 or 4:00 in the morning and making them get up so we could open presents. But, for the first time, someone else in this house beat me out of bed this morning. Daddy is already in the kitchen making breakfast for the family. I told him I would give him a few minutes to get everything ready before I go and start waking up Stacey.
It’s great to be at home for a few days with my family though. Just the few hours last night that I got to spend with all of them was great. I can’t remember the last time that we were all here and hanging out in the living room together with nothing else to do and no rushing around. This is what Christmas and the entire holiday season is about people – LOVE. Over 2000 years ago, we were all loved enough for God to send his Son to be on Earth. So take the time and be with your family and share that kind of love with them.
