I love Christmas.
I love everything about the Christmas season!
It was magical as a child and amazingly it remains magical as a adult.
I love the music. I love the glistening snow. I love the twinkling lights. I love the feel. I love the magic.
It is all of the tangible things, like the lights, the church services, the music, the presents and all of that, but it is so much more.
Any given day of the year you can find a person saying, we really need to slow down and remember what really matters....although nice in words it is often hard to follow in action.
We make time for family and friends.
We spend time pondering the perfect gift that will show our appreciation to our loved ones.
We talk about Jesus.
We recognize need in others and want to take action and help.
I witnessed an amazing act of giving this week that reminds me how much good there is still in the world.
I knew the season was passing by much too quickly.
We needed to stop.
So Friday night the kids and I had an impromptu Magically Wonderful Christmas Supper.
The kids made their own pizza, we dusted off the china, we lit candles and drank Root Beer from bottles so they would clank when we would "cheers" and "cheers" and "cheers."
Cohen ended supper by saying: "I think this was the best night ever."
