Some sunshine, some baking, some gift wrapping. Extra work days, time with friends, new provincial restrictions starting tomorrow. The ups and downs of December, of life in an ongoing pandemic. The joys and excitement of Christmas and the realities of life. All mixed up together.
We are blessed to have extended family to celebrate with and to be able to be together. We are blessed to have supportive and fun friends, to be a part of a community that cares for one another. We’re blessed to be able to splurge on gifts and special food, to have a warm and comfortable home. We’re blessed to have two little girls who are so sweet, who are so excited for Christmas Day. And we are blessed by a saviour who humbled Himself so thoroughly as to live among us. I am glad to celebrate these things this season.
The next few days will be busy ones in our house and then we will get to spend time together and with other family to celebrate Christmas. We’re looking forward to this and to some time to rest. I’ll come back for one final highlight before 2021 ends but I’m going to take next week off. Wishing each one of you a beautiful holiday season, whatever that might look like for you.
