I don’t live in the world where “not a creature was stirring” on the eve of Christmas. It would be great if all the critters really could help out at midnight Christmas Eve!  But, its not about the gifts and decorations is it. Its about family and children and friends and the love of a God sent down for us all. So I will refuse to fret about Christmas perfection, or the 15 people coming Christmas day and the baby joining our family soon in the new year. I will choose to enjoy life and laughter and sharing around our table. And whatever doesn’t get done, i’ll blame on the mice that slept soundly without stirring instead of using their magic to help me out!
