how was your christmas?
as the days pass, more and more details blur together into the simplicity of good….
in sorting the hundreds of images, i am reminded of the blessing of food (plenty, plenty, plenty is all that can be said).
the blessing of gifts. because of traveling, we opened presents in spurts for over a week. today eliza woke up and said, “who will give me a present today?” i’m inspired by barack and michelle who joked in an interview that everyday is christmas for their girls: a place to sleep and food to eat.
the blessing of furry friends was upon us. cuddling oma and opas new puppy still brings giggles when we remember him. sally is a wonderful travel companion. we saw marley and me (i had to control myself not to HOWL) and loved it…so many familiar moments.
the weather we experienced was only a blessing. we escaped slipping or crashing. naomi got her tongue off the back fence on her own. it was cold enough to see frozen waterfalls. it was warm enough to explore more of papa’s piles as cousins.
and now the blessing of home has welcomed us. we’re grateful for family (even if we were only together on skype). we’ve been cleaning and sorting our nest. making room for new treasures.
making room for the new year.
