I feel my 'kids' know the real meaning of Christmas (but still enjoy the excitement of Christmas morning and discovering their surprises)
No matter HOW old they are, they will always be kids......... and , you know, that is FINE with me!!!
I have enjoyed watching Erin (my 22 year old) shop for everyone and wrap her treasures. But what has really enthralled me are the cards. They speak VOLUMES to me! She has really put thought into what she has written. She is a treasure!!!!
Andrew (my almost 20 year old) is gorgeous, too. He thinks of others. And , in turn, is rewarded for his thoughtfulness. His father took him shopping this morning !!!!!
Patrick, my gorgeous 21 year old, is having money troubles. Don't they always????
And Lauren, my lovely 23 year old, is engrossed in new work adventures/decisions.
I am so lucky to have four such wonderful 'children'.
And I REALLY mean it!!!
Christmas Day will be busy in our home.
Our extended family will join us for a fun filled day.
I am stressing, a little, about the food.
But it will be fine.
Stressful, but fine.
Boxing Day is our 'friends day'.
We are having our close friends over for a LONG lunch.
So, for the next two days, I will be cooking.
..........and attending church with ALL my family.
As I said, I am truly blessed.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas full of love.
