On Christmas morning my sons and Brianna wrenched me out of the kitchen in order to take a walk with the pups. I was torn- feeling like I had so much to do before the 16 guests came for Christmas dinner at 4pm. Then I stopped and asked myself. What is the important thing right now?
It was a beautiful crisp morning and we went to the corner park so that Willow and Lua could get their wiggles out and Robert and Peter could play on the equipment.
I couldn’t have planned it better myself. No Christmas card picture would have come out better than this one. Perhaps the unstaged is the most representative. If this is true, I feel especially blessed.
It was a graced moment. An unplanned trip to the park with cups of coffee and a chill in the air and the people who mean everything to me. Much more than a perfectly cooked and served turkey.
