Silence and Peace and Lovely Music
A lovely Christmas Eve morning . . . .
New fallen snow . . . and more falling, creating perfect Christmas card scenes
An old barn across Taylor's old Lockwood farm--dark in the early dawn except for its roof blanketed in white.
Lights on at the Meserve Preserve, including the old barn where Midnight and Helper Cat are getting their morning meal.
Bill in the shower downstairs, preparing for the trip into Spokane to pick up Annie at the airport.
No doubt, Annie on her way down I-5, headed to Sea-Tac where she flew in last night from Los Angeles and will fly out this morning with ultimate destination---the snowy Lovestead.
Other family members tidying up their homes and waiting for travelers from the West Coast and Montana to arrive safely on this wintry day.
An elderly mother slowly but surely realizing the greatest gift of her Christmas---the appearance of many of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Thoughts of Young Loves in Boise with grandpups enjoying the holiday with "Love Debbie's" family and her many longtime friends.
We love you, Willie, Debbie, Todd and Brooke. Say hello to your clan from ours.
Images of treasured friends and family across this world and feelings of love sent to all.
Pets in wonderment, especially our beloved Mr. Foster this year as he wonders about the Christmas tree that took up his private space and watches Mom and Dad Love, ever so busy with so many projects.
Yes, it's a peaceful, somewhat silent morning filled with lovely Christmas music and thoughts of a busy, family-filled day ahead.
God is good!
