Shopping is done. Christmas cookies are made. Food is purchased and prepared for the celebration. Stress is finally relieved as all chores are complete.
Time to enjoy family and friends — everyone is home for the holidays. My children will be home for Christmas Eve celebrations — our family tradition. Christmas Day has always been for us a day of rest and relaxation. When the children were young it gave them an opportunity to play with new toys and games. As adults, Christmas Day is a day to spend with their significant others and their families — no conflict of schedules — I have always loved that feeling.
This Christmas Day, I will go see my other family — the horses! They bring such joy and pleasure to my life that seeing them and giving them their Christmas carrots is a joy onto itself.
Merry Christmas and Best Wishes to all my readers this holiday season.
