tis the day of the eve

The sun is trying to make an appearance today. The light begins to play through the clouds and the trees, and all is peaceful and right. And the day begins... this day of the eve of Christmas.
I can feel the magic in the air. I can feel the happiness and the love. Peace on earth and goodwill to all. With the many bad things that happen in this world, I will never give up on the idea of peace on earth.
We will laugh and sing and dance and wallow in love for one another. We will remember Christmases past and tell of the birth of a precious little baby long ago and far away.
Then we will snuggle in bed and read some favourite Christmas books.
And yes... we will try and sleep tonight... listening to each and every little crick in the house... wondering if it could possibly be the sound of tiny reindeer hoofs on the roof.

We will believe in the magic... we will believe in the spirit... we will believe in Christmas.

Merry Christmas to all of you. xoxo
