The Christmas Season, 2013

I have to say I am really enjoying the Christmas season this year. As I sit here right now, at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 17th, I feel very blessed. I am home today because the substitute teaching job I was supposed to have today got cancelled due to no school because of a snow storm. I am sitting here, across from Chuck at the dining room table which is covered with a seasonably red tablecloth. Both of us are working on our computers. Behind us, the Christmas tree is lit, and the living room is brightly decorated with red and green and gold decorations. The television is on the seasonal music station and we are enjoying Christmas music while we do our work. The dog is nestled all snug in her bed in her bed, just like in the famous poem by Clement Moore. I sip hot chocolate, and every once in awhile, I glance outside to see the snow lightly falling, and inside, I feel warm and fuzzy and happy...happy to be here in this home with the love of my life, enjoying a warm and cozy atmosphere, and celebrating the season of joy because our God chose to send us the ultimate Christmas gift...the gift of His very own son. I have all I could ever want or need at this time in my life. I wish you all the same, and as much happiness as your hearts can hold this Christmas season. Here are some pictures of our home this Christmas:
