As you wander through our home, there are projects in every nook and cranny. All in various stages of completion. Will they be finished? Will we make it in time? Should we all worry that our cards are laying in a pile unposted? That the Christmas Cake is still a recipe on the computer? That the family pictures have yet to arrive? That two gifts haven't arrived in the mail yet? That the Commander in Chief of the Elves is sick and dizzy?
Even with the delays...I am proud of my elves...and despite the messes in every room and my company coming by on Tuesday...I am ever proud that my Elves choose to make gifts and make some more. That they think to give and give from their hands and hearts. I love seeing the stray crayons and markers, the letters begun on the old typewriter, the holiday books open and being read, the glitter glue in use and projects drying everywhere. I am grateful that my eldest little elf has embraced wrapping and is taking care of me this year. I am grateful that my smallish elf has been singing to me and often.
Wishing you and yours a season of handmade gifts and tasty goodies made from the heart!! Happy Holidays all!!
