Every year I have one moment when I catch the Christmas Spirit. When I finally can't wait for it to come. When I think how exciting it will be to give the gifts I have been hiding. When I think of the special birthday that we are celebrating...and think of his hands outstretched to me.
The moment usually happens on my way home from work while I am listening to Christmas music. The moment hit me on Thursday on my drive home, and I could hardly contain myself. Saturday we made our yearly trek to get a REAL Christmas tree at one of the fruit stands in Brigham. The tree smells SO good, and is super tall and for sure a Charlie Brown tree. I am especially grateful because we just found out that all my brothers and sisters will be coming home for Christmas. This just adds to my already good mood.
When the feeling finally comes I want it to last all year. Sigh...sugar cookies anyone?
