Merry Christmas To All!

Well, everything is nearly done - or as done as it is going to be! I’m just making a couple more kinds of stuffing and we are getting ready for this evening’s journey to my husband’s parents house. We opened our cards to each other this afternoon, and my husband and I were so touched by our son’s card. As well as personalising it so it was very much uniquely from him, he also took the time to write on little slips of paper the things he wanted to say thank you to us for. It was quite funny when they all fell out of the card as we opened it - and so touching to read them. Some were funny, some were thoughtful, and some - like one that said “all the happy memories” very nearly made me cry. It’s lovely to know that in the midst of all the chaos that is our life, our son feels supported, loved and secure. It means everything to us.

It further underscores what I wrote about yesterday - that one of the most important parts of this season is the love - both God’s love for us, and our love for each other. I hope that you are able to spend this Christmas in the company of those you love and that as well as having a very Merry Christmas, the spirit of Christmas will stay with you in a tiny corner of your heart all year long.

Thank you for being a reader of The 21st Century Housewife© this year, and a very Merry Christmas to you all!
