Santa Eve

Today dawned cold and brilliant. The trees twinkled and chimed in the breeze. Our home had seemingly been set down inside a snow globe; everything had been turned into a blue-hued winter wonderland following the ice storm. Inside, loved ones bustled about, secretive and whispering. Animal-shaped cookies were decorated by old and young. Alex finished the daybed for the living room, in time for family and friends to gather. And those corners I so longed for, began to reflect all that live here.

We have so much to be grateful for. So much to be proud of, so much yet to do.

I can't say for sure what the next year will bring, but I do know that I will strive to hold this season in my heart all the year long. Merry, merry, friends. May your days be brilliant, joyous, and oh so full of love.

Life is full of sweet surprises
Everyday's a gift
The sun comes up and I can feel it lift my spirit
Fills me up with laughter, fills me up with song
I look into the eyes of love and know that I belong

Bless us all, who gather here
The loving family I hold dear
No place on earth, compares with home
And every path will bring me back from where I roam
Bless us all, that as we live
We always comfort and forgive
We have so much, that we can share
With those in need we see around us everywhere

Let us always love each other
Lead us to the light
Let us hear the voice of reason, singing in the night
Let us run from anger and catch us when we fall
Teach us in our dreams and please, yes please
Bless us one and all

Bless us all with playful years
With noisy games and joyful tears
We reach for You and we stand tall
And in our prayers and dreams
We ask You bless us all

We reach for You and we stand tall
And in our prayers and dreams we ask you
Bless us all

~The Muppets, Bless Us All
