Love makes merry

Although I wish it for you every Thursday, this one in particular I hope finds you with peace and love in your heart, and kindness and laughter in your home.

xmas-eve-2009

I’m off to spend Christmas with the people I love most in the entire world. There’s soup to make and baking to be done and stockings to stuff and—of course—A Christmas Story to watch. Because nothing says “Love of Christ” like “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.”

Nonetheless: It is, indeed, a most wonderful life.

Happy Love Thursday, everyone… and here’s to making merry, no matter the season.

    Have a wonderful holiday. I really enjoy reading your blog(s), though rarely comment (nervous in the shadow of greatness. *grin*).

    Santa Christmas Countdown is super cute.

    Now, you should know my son just happily reported to me that his grandparents bought him a red ryder bb gun. And you know what I said to that, right? I mean, 4000 bbs. That can only go horribly wrong.

    Merry Christmas, Mir!

    A very merry Christmas to you all. You deserve it wholeheartedly. You have brightened my year up immensely. I might not comment often but I read every day and your family and the love you have for each other are an inspiration. ( it’s midnight here in northern Ireland and I may have had a couple of glasses of wine… Can you tell?) hope you have a fab day tomorrow.

    Merry Christmas! Hope your holiday was as love- and laughter-filled as you hoped it would be. (And I also hope there are too many crises waiting for me to catch up on. Blog material=good. Peaceful Christmastime=better.)
