On the central west coast of California, we had our coffee on the deck in the crisp morning air, watching as the beauty transformed itself into Christmas Day.
We waited for our children to wake up, not for them to see what magic had happened, but rather to thank them for creating the magic. At the ages of 17 & 20 they have been making the 'magic' happen for us the past couple years.
We had done a lot of prep work on Christmas Eve to prepare for the big feast.
There would be twelve eating dinner, some family from out of state, some from around the corner. Our house is the gathering spot for all.
Enjoy your day and remember what you have in your life to be grateful for!
