Christmas is still here!

I arrived home today and my granddaughter came over to see me and it was so cute ...she took me all over my house to show me that Christmas was still here. We had to turn on every Christmas light and make sure the Christmas music was turned up. Can you tell... we are related?  :) Then as I was unpacking my clothes, she started playing on the bed with all my scarves. When my daughter Lauren came in she said " Angie, you look like Mary, baby Jesus' mom."  Then not wanting to miss a photo opportunity, she ran and got Angie a baby Jesus and put her in front of the fireplace and told her to smile. Later when we started to sit down for dinner, Angie came in without all the dress up clothes on and she said " Nana, I not Maryed any more, I am just Angie".

How grateful I am for children, because they remind us that "SEEING ISN'T BELIEVING, BELIEVING IS SEEING". So tonight I hope you can look around in your home and in your life and still see that Christmas is here. I love the song Where Are You Christmas? It is a beautiful song and it reminds us to make sure that we are don't ever forget the true meaning of Christmas and that we should also keep it in our hearts all year long!


Where are you Christmas?
Why can't I find you?
Why have you gone away?
Where is the laughter
You used to bring me?
Why can't I hear music play?
My world is changing
I'm rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too?
Where are you Christmas
Do you remember
The one you used to know
I'm not the same one
See what the time's done
Is that why you have let me go
Christmas is here
Everywhere, oh
Christmas is here
If you care, oh
If there is love in your heart and your mind
You will feel like Christmas all the time
I feel you Christmas
I know I've found you
You never fade away
The joy of Christmas
Stays here in silence
Fills each and every heart with love
Where are you Christmas
Fills your heart with love

"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. "  Dr. Seuss

Thanks for sharing this Mom, she's quite a character! It makes me smile to hear about sweet moments like these. It's even better because Lauren was able to capture that moment. John and I both love the photo and are grateful you were able to watch her tonight. Thank you for making Christmas so special for her, she loves her Nana! Love you Mom, Amy
