I read a little story over at a lovely writer's site and then I understood something new about myself. Isn't that the best kind of reading, after all? I was missing my Christmas.
Not for the hustle and bustle of it all. I haven't been near the mall this year... nor even the specialty shops. Not a single online "doorbuster" has busted thanks to me.
We've loved the handmade, homegrown Christmas of our own little family's creation.
And we've not forgotten, of course, the reason for the season: Jesus Christ come to Earth for love's sake.
