When we gathered at church last night to remember husbands, grandchildren, sons, daughters, parents, and grandparents, I had no idea how special it would be………..
We ate, we hugged, we laughed, we shared……..
Then we began creating……..
Measuring, cutting, tracing, assembling………..
But most of all, sharing.
Sharing memories, sharing life, sharing stories, sharing love……..
After we had taken our photos, our craft supplies, and our ornaments and created beautiful heirlooms for our trees and for gifts for friends and family……….
And after we had gathered in a circle with candles lit,
and “Joy to the World” sang (after all, the coming of the Savior is what gives us our joy),
we smiled and knew that our evening together was just what we all needed to begin this holiday season.
As I look back on last night, I wonder, “Is this how the world began?”
Hugging, laughing, sharing……….
Followed by the words,
“This is good.”
I’m thankful that as I type these words, God is busy again…….
Hugging, laughing, sharing, and creating a Home for us all in Heaven.
One day I want to meet each of you there, and as I hug you I will say with a great big smile!
“THIS IS GOOD!!!”
Have a happy Monday!
I love you all so much,
