"Think of small rituals of Christmas -
signatures of love -
little touches of interaction that are unique to the season."
Jenny and Samantha came over this afternoon. Jenny loves her baby. JOY! Tomorrow Scott has the day off so he can cuddle his darling girl!
I have three weeks of school until my Christmas break. I am trying to think of ways to make the season festive for the students. Charles Dickens? The THEME (remember from A Christmas Story?) Jingle Bell Rock dance contests? Winter haiku? Got any ideas?
I wish YOU, dear reader, a couple rosy-cheeked walks, long deep sniffs of peppermint and greenery, 20 some quiet, peaceful sleeps before Christmas, joy and love popping out of red envelopes, many cups of Christmas tea and a few successful cookie baking endeavors, warm hands to hold, and the gentle tinkle of bells. The season holds such simple beauty and I think it's found in the little things, so I wish you little things.
