Today was a hard day. My heart and body are weary. It was a hard day ... but there were gifts in it.
Sam pushing the wagon, making it lighter as we walked him to school.
D. picking up Patrick so I could have the car.
Friends popping by with Christmas goodies.
Help carrying the tantruming kids to the car.
Kachi's delight in a bowl of strawberries.
Gifts spread out, just for me, in the drudgey trudging. They shine like stars.
Merry Christmas, friends.
