There's something about the month of December that just makes my heart feel light.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
"...Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel..."
Dave - Home For Christmas
hot chocolate (homemade, i.e.) and sweetly decorated cookies,
(and every other fixing that I could dedicate a whole blog to that reminds me of this holiday... Grandma's chicken and dumplings, Aunt Wandie's brunswick stew, mama's dressing and pecan pie, and recently Betsy's sweet potato souffle.. but only because it tastes nothing like sweet potatos), and of course time well spent with my favorite people (and canines).
