This is the calm before the crazy. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. The baking is finished, the shopping is done, the presents are wrapped. Six grandkids will be under the tree tomorrow and I'll be ready for them. I didn't decorate much this year. Just some greens I picked up at Trader Joe's, the tree got trimmed and I brought a few things out of storage. With so much unrest in the world, I really needed some peace this year. I braved the Christmas shopping madness just twice. Tomorrow we're a houseful for dinner and delight. But I'll also keep Christmas quietly in my heart and pray for peace that the world so desperately needs.
