Tonight was a lot of fun. We got together with all of the cousins in Arizona and had a little family Christmas party. The kids had a blast together, as evidenced by the giggles and laughter that echoed throughout the home. During the festivities, I took a few moments to sit back and quietly watch the kids - their unfeigned excitement and glee helped to remind me of one of the most important parts of the holiday season - JOY.

The joy of giving, the joy of sharing, the joy of being with relatives and loved ones, the joy of hearing from friends and family who do not live near by, and the joy in celebrating the birth of Christ. We have all been blessed in so many ways, and I am thankful for the spirit of this holiday and for the JOY that it brings into my life and my home.

Happy holidays everyone!
