This is a perfect song for a perfect day. Family in every bedroom of the house and in the barn apartment. We’re up early drinking coffee and sitting around the kitchen laughing and telling stories. Some that are new and others that are still funny after hearing them dozens of times over the years.
My nephew’s significant other, sweet Sally, is here for her first of our family Christmases and she’s getting an ear full. She lives in Asheville, NC and she has promised to help me check off a bucket list item. I’m making plans to spend an intoxicated Friday night participating in the infamous Asheville drum circle. I’m waiting for warmer weather.
We’re having a nice, easy morning in the kitchen with people we love and we’re anticipating an afternoon of raucous Dirty Santa antics. Our holidays are so easy. No big fancy things, just comfortable events, comfort food, easy talk and hugs. Lots of laughter and smiles. This song makes me think of times like these.
I hope your holidays are like this too. I’m praying today for all the people in the world who won’t have a day like mine.
