Two are grown and one to go.
Will I read …
will there be …
will I MAKE time ….
to use an advent calendar
with my grandchildren one day?
But, this year is like others.
My parents a few hours away,
I haven’t bought groceries …
floors need vacuuming …
one last present to buy.
But, at least there is no fretting this year.
Like last, I am at least at peace
knowing that some things just don’t matter.
The vacuuming will be finished before they arrive …
the present …
And their visit will be over in a blink.
I am praying for passage through the day
like never before
on His birth.
Maybe this will be the Christmas unlike any other
because it will certainly be a Christmas unlike any other.
Every truly new experience
is a gift.
What will He teach me
as I spend my day in His presence?
In my whole entire life …. I have never spent Christmas day alone.
Maybe I will spend it creating next year’s Advent calendar.
It would be a good time to begin.
