Sharing Christmas and New Years – Weekend Coffee Share

 

If we were having coffee, I would be sharing Christmas and New Years Week. Christmas week was hectic by at the same time enjoyable. I finally got around to wrapping all the presents I had bought through Amazon.com and everything I ordered was there and in working order. The most fun was wrapping the presents for my granddaughter, age 6 and my grandson, age 4. I got them lots of books, art supplies, and games that they could play together when they aren’t arguing. Really they are pretty fun kids to be around. My granddaughter is so imaginative and always dressing up or playing store or school. My grandson is very, very active and always running around, building stuff, playing with his dinosaurs or trucks. In fact, the only time he is quiet for a while is when he is playing on his Kindle (a gift I bought last year for Christmas).

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I got just what I asked for Christmas. I received a NIV Rainbow Study Bible and it is really neat because it is color coded for prophecy, salvation, family, etc. I had one before when I lived in St. Petersburg, FL but My ex couldn’t find it when he looked through the house after I moved with my daughter and family to Nashville, TN. So, I am just thrilled to have it back again in a newer model.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I spent Christmas Eve alone, by choice, listening to the radio service at my old church in St. Petersburg, FL. It is Christ the Cornerstone Church and has a wonderful pastor, Pastor Joyce, and wonderful praise and worship music. I listen every Sunday morning and it was a special treat to listen Thursday evening also.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that we have a special New Years Eve party every year that is just family and includes my daughter, son-in-law, and the two grandkids plus myself. We all take naps so we can stay up late and watch the ball drop at Times Square in New York. We celebrate with some snacky foods and non-alcoholic drinks for all except my daughter and son-in-law drink a glass wine or champagne to celebrate. We have the living room decorated, and of course, streamers and horns and hats as all the trappings. It is such fun.

If we were having coffee, I would finally shut up long enough to ask you how your holidays were and if you had any special plans for New Years. I would remind you to be careful if you are going out because a lot of drunk people are on the roads that night and I wouldn’t want you getting hurt. I would ask if you are having any visitors for New Years Day and what you have planned for dinner. I would also ask if you got what you wanted from Santa.
