Snow on trees


It has been a lovely Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Last night I shared in the annual Christmas Eve fondue dinner celebration with friends and their families…8 adults (9 with me) and 10 children. First the children opened gifts then we had a delicious and fun fondue meal, including fondue chocolate for dipping marshmallow, bananas, and fresh strawberries as our dessert.
The evening finale was the annual children’s enactment of the Nativity story, which included the newest baby in the family (3 weeks Jacob) as our baby Jesus. As usual, a joyful celebration.

Later as I spoke with a friend who lives in another state, I looked out my big front window to see a lovely sight of falling snow.

Through all this time with others, and also my own quiet time, I remembered how grateful I am for my blessings.
