The best part about the holidays? The laughter.
Daughter #1 has been home three days and there have already been several spontaneous outbursts of giggles, guffaws, and silent-belly-aching-tearful-laughter moments. And the best is yet to come as a sister, two nieces, a future son-in-law (fsil), and daughter #2 are all due in by Wednesday evening. We haven’t been joined by this much family for Christmas
in years ever.
I am so happy already that the usual stress inducers are mere blips on my karma screen. Finished shopping? Nah. Christmas cards
done started? Nope. Christmas dinner planned? Uh-uh. Cookies baked? Dream on. House clean? Well, good enough for family, I suppose. Ten trips to the airport? No sweat. Ready to start inventory at the bookstore? Hah!
And although it’s not the cleverest comic, there’s something about this Luann strip that I really love.
So let’s all try to put more HAPPY in our happy holidays. Here’s to lots of joy and laughter in the next week and the coming new year!
