In Our Kitchen on Christmas Eve

20171217_221340The smooth sound of Kenny G ‘s saxophone, playing Silver Bells from his Christmas CD. A timer dings. Chocolate chip muffins?? I never knew there was such a thing!

She quickly comes in wearing her green Christmas apron, and pulls another tray from the oven. “Sweetheart, don’t over do it!”, slips out of my mouth.

She draws close and snuggles into my neck. As my hands reach around her waist. I tell her honestly, “Honey if you didn’t cook anything, that would be ok.”

We embrace, and as our children turn on the Christmas lights in the dining room, I whisper into her ear, “You……are my gift…..”

From our house to yours……Happy Holidays, and Merry Christmas!

And if you don’t celebrate Christmas I wish you peace and wonderful blessings!
