As has been my family tradition in years past, we opened presents on Christmas Eve. Kids made out pretty well this year.
However, now the carnage is over, and it's time for a little reason for the season, as we're about to head to the 11 pm services at church.
There's just something about Christmas Eve that is so magical, with all the candles, and the lights down low. Standing in the dark, holding a candle, singing "Silent Night," with the people I love all around me, ushering in the celebration of Christ's birth, is one of my favorite things of the year.
My friends, may this Christmas, and many more, see you hand in hand with the ones you love, surrounded by the joy of the season.
Down the rabbit hole...
Time again for some intense naval gazing!
I'm supposed to be doing homework right now. I still have a couple of tests to take before the end of the semester, which is looming in a most fearsome fashion.
But to be honest, I'm just not feeling the square roots right now.
We watched Rudolph with the kids tonight. Had forgotten just how sad Rudolph, Hermy and those poor little misfit toys sounded. And how much I can sympathize with them.
You know who I don't spend enough time with? Me. Between work, church, school, organizations, kids, home, etc., I rarely even have what could be called down time. So starting now, I'll be spending more time with me. Finding out what I like, what's on my mind, getting to know me.
I'm kind of excited about this.
I might even start writing more.
