I tap my husband in his sleep and say, "I just bought you ten minutes, get up! Ten minutes that is all I can promise."
Christmas is the great equalizer. We, each us, behave better this time of year. Well most of us. There is still that occasional person jockeying in Wal-Mart for the last FROZEN video or Cabbage Patch Doll. Get in their way and you risk your next breath of survival. That aside, Merry Christmas!
I wish we could hold that Christmas spirit the other 364 days. Not the gift side but the giving side. The emotional, helpful, loving, forgiving, remembering, gentle, appreciative, tolerant, considerate, gentile, side. That would be one amazing gift. Perhaps the greatest gift of all.
Anyway, gotta run. There are gifts to be opened. Wrapping paper to be cleaned up. Bows to be recycled. Elation tears to be wiped. Hugs. Laughs. Thanks Yous. The whole nine.
But most of all there is this remembrance BORN IS THE KING! Let it not be just another Christmas holiday! Awake! A new day is born!
