Merry Christmas

It's Christmas Eve.  The Boy is asleep.  The tree is dripping with ornaments and the bottom half is buried beneath far more presents than can possibly be good for any of us.  My parents have gone to bed, and Neil and I are enjoying a few minutes of quiet reading before heading toward bed ourselves.  It's very peaceful here.  I wish it were this peaceful, safe, and sweet everywhere in the world.

I had a similar thought driving home from my mother-in-law's last night. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Wishing you a very happy Christmas! I wish the entire world were as peaceful and safe as a warm house on Christmas, too.

I hope Ben has a great time opening presents and playing with his new toys!
