The day before Christmas has always been a busy one of sorts..the last minute food items purchased..the housework and laundry complete..
Our evening was spent with our daughter watching a movie and eating appetizers..
..the presents are all placed under the tree over at Carlie’s apartment next door…
the only thing under our tree?..is Oliver..he seems to enjoy sitting under there?..I am sure he is wondering where are the gifts are?..
but if he didn’t chew on the ribbon and the pretty paper our tree would be occupied..
On this December 24th it also seems to be a time to pause and reflect on what the true meaning of Christmas really is…we saw this video on the news tonight..and I felt the need to share it..
this video has been playing every Christmas Eve on our local new station since 1998..and tonight was the first time we had seen it..
we consider ourselves most fortunate to have a great family and a warm place to live..we know there are many who struggle everyday of the year..
if only it could be Christmas time all year long…be kind to your neighbours and strangers on the street..
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!
