Christmas Dreams

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 6:00 am



Right now…

Right now is when I get hit by the Christmas spirit.

It seems to elude me as we move toward Christmas.

When you are a child, you spend your time waiting for Christmas, and that anticipation makes it seem so magical.

When you are an adult, you spend your time preparing for Christmas, and that work can be exhausting.

Yet, in the quiet of the night when all the presents are wrapped and the stockings are filled…the house is quiet.

In that quiet, I find myself anticipating, once again.  

Anticipating the pitter-patter of excited little feet rushing down the stairs in the morning, and the squeals of excitement before they run back up the stairs to wake us.

And just like that…the magic is restored.

Whether you are celebrating Christmas today, or not, may today be full of love, joy, and magic.


  1. Merry Christmas to you and yours Amy!
