I was sitting with my coffee this morning and reflecting back to when the boys were small and some of the great memories of Christmas’s past. One in particular comes to mind to when our eldest was just a wee boy perhaps 2 years old or so we used to go to the early Children’s Mass at church. The children were encouraged to sit up in the front pews just adjacent to the manger with Jesus, Mary and Joseph in it. During the story of how Jesus was born in the stable in Jerusalem the Priest stated that we were going to sing a hymn. Out of this little lad came a big voice…"Are we going to sing Happy Birthday now?” The congregation had a big laugh. I have never forgot that.
I have a dining room table full of gingerbread cookies needing to be iced. I had better get at it. Have a Very Merry Christmas to you all. Valerie
