Tonight’s menu: Smoked beef brisket from a local farm; tiella; fruit stollen; corn casserole; green beans with bacon and onion; sweet potato fries; raspberry trifle for dessert along with fruitcake and holiday cookies…
Friends joined us to eat and we are now in the middle of a ping pong tournament. Soon we will attend church. So, for a moment I am sitting quietly, counting my blessings and being thankful, missing my sister, and preparing for tomorrow.. a day of joy in the birth of the Light of the World, and a day of family and fun and more good food.
We have brunch at our house tomorrow for our inlaws and family.. and the rest of the day just happens as it happens. Peace and contentment and happiness… the best gifts ever.
May it be so at your home as well. Merry Christmas!
