At Christmas, all roads lead home.  ~Marjorie Holmes

Today I am finishing up with gift wrapping and cookie baking.
The house smells like Christmas, looks like Christmas, feels like Christmas.
I feel the season's gentle benevolence descend 
like softly falling snow.
And best of all I am looking forward to the most treasured gift
of all~ my sweet children gathered here for Christmas eve
and Christmas day! 
I love the laughter they share, the bright noise of them together! 
Everything else will fall away, the trials of life
will dissolve like snowflakes meeting a candle flame.
Joy will fill my home when those sweet faces
gather here. 
There is no present greater than love.
