It is in the day to day that Christmas surfaces.
It is in unloading sacks and sacks of groceries,
saying a prayer of gratitude while realizing once again that I bought too much.
It is in the dirty dishes and the adage that
‘many hands make light work’
and in the reflecting I do when alone at that same sink.
It is in casual meals on the patio with family and little white lights twinkling
And it is in finding, in the back of a cabinet, my mother’s
small green punch bowl and punch cups.
What a treat.
How do you enjoy the day to day during this wonderful season?
