CAROLYN’S DAILY POSTS: 2011
A QUIET CHRISTMAS DAY, 2011
Last evening Monte, my daughter Sandy and her husband Michael, and I attended Christmas Eve services at Heritage United Methodist Church in Ligonier, Pennsylvania.
Today was a quiet day. A nice respite after the hectic preparations for the season, and the hectic activities of 2011.
My husband and I awoke, read the newspaper, opened our gifts. He went to church while I lounged about at home, relishing the quiet. In the afternoon we walked to our daughter’s house to watch our granddaughter open her gifts, and ate dinner there. It was just the five of us. A ham dinner. Quite good.
Christmas isn’t about hectic activity, although it seems to be that way for most of us. It’s about peaceful relationships between persons who love each other, and love for those we don’t feel a likeness for, and for those who are less fortunate than we are.
I hope all you you had a joyful holiday.
Our son from Cleveland didn’t arrive today, but will probably come tomorrow. I’d best get some rest before they arrive…
