Merry Christmas to All

There's a party at my house tonight.

The mantle is dressed.




The candles wait for flame.

My children will be here in two days. We're hosting Christmas dinner, and fun will be had by all. As I type, I should be scurrying to clean and prepare. Instead, I'm sitting in wonder, in awe of (as a friend called it the other day) the game of ovarian roulette that made this my lot rather than a mud hut or a cardboard box under an overpass.

That's beyond my understanding, beyond my ability to know. But having been given the gifts of this life, I must use them well, enjoy them thoroughly, and share both my gifts and my love.

So MUCH love to you, my bloggy tribe. It is a pleasure and a privilege to be part of this miraculous circle of creative, loving people. Merry, Merry Christmas to you and yours.

May only good come TO you.

May only good come FROM you.

May you live in the Light of Love.

Jerri - this is beautiful. I have wondered these questions myself? We should be grateful for our lot in life and pass on the goodness and love to others.
I love that we have met this year via cyberspace - it has been fun getting to know you through your words.
May blessings!
