I am sitting here in my COZY robe that my daughter bought me. It is so SOFT that I may just have to wear it all day tomorrow. 🙂 We go to my sister’s tomorrow to be with all my family, I should text her and ask if robes can be the proper attire. Ha!
What is really making me warm tho, is not only the robe, its my heart. Warmth came as I woke up to my daughter nudging me saying its past time to be up! As I went to wake my husband who turned out to be faking that he was sleeping! Warmed when I came out to the girls in happy spirits talking about what they thought the big gift was and who it was for. We stopped putting names on gifts, fun to watch them try to guess whose is whose. We use different colored wrap to distinguish them. I am warmed by the hugs my daughters have given me today, the smiles on their faces as they opened their gifts. The love they showed me through the gifts they picked out for me. My heart is warmed by my husband and how he made a CD for me. A CD that I had written down after hearing it on Pandora and really liking it. I didn’t realize it was out of print. So he took the time to get the songs as MP3’s and burn them to a CD and print out a cover for me. He is thoughtful like that and it always warms my heart.
My heart feels cozy as I watch my daughter and husband on the couch watching a new DVD, that she got him. Seeing them work together on setting up her new telescope and seeing her joy as she got a close up look at the moon. She wants to go into Astronomy, so I was thrilled at finding this gift for her at a bargain price!!
Warmth creeps in the heart as my daughter questions me about how many of those freshly baked cookies are gone?? Did I eat them all? No, I didn’t 🙂
Most of all, my heart is warmed by the precious love of God’s son, who’s birth we celebrate today! May that warmth spread to your heart and bring to it an eternal smile.
Merry Christmas my friends!
