Yep — it’s that time of year again when we are all in preparation mode for The Visit. Halls being decked, goodies being made, packages being wrapped.
We all know the drill.
We want everything just so for when that Special Guest arrives on Christmas Eve.
This year, for me, my timeline got moved up considerably. For you see — My Special Guest arrives this week. He is also traveling from the Far North — almost The North Pole!
My Best Friend arrives in a couple of days to help me celebrate sixty years on Planet Earth. I am so excited that I really DO feel like a kid waiting for Santa to arrive on Christmas Eve.
As I sit here literally counting the hours until his arrival — it dawns on me how exactly right The Grinch got Christmas. It’s isn’t about packages or ribbons or bows. It’s about coming together with The Humans we love.
Whether you’re missing someone dearly — or looking forward to spending time with the someones you love, Christmas is always about The Humans.
We make Christmas for those we love simply by our presence.
We are The Light in The Darkness.
We are The Christmas Spirit to each other.
We are The Gift.
“Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!” — The Grinch.
