Christmas travelers soon to arrive ~ day 1

The stockings are hung in my hallway with care knowing the grandbabies soon will be there.

The first of the out of town family arrives tomorrow. The guest room is clean, there are fresh towels, and two portable baby beds are in place. I have pancakes and bacon for breakfast and whipped cream for the coffee. The packages are wrapped and the kitchen floor has been mopped. I look around and love my cozy home, the walls aching for the sound of my children once again crowding around the table.

We are a family of storytellers and I can't wait for hot tea and stories, both old and new, as we feast, share, and rejoice in another Christmas, another year of God's goodness to all of us.
