...oh what a beautiful day! (Everyone now!) "I got a beautiful feelin' everything's goin' my way!"
Okay, well, maybe not "goin' my way," but such is life, eh?
I remember hearing that song for the first time when I was a little girl watching our local high school's rendition of "Oklahoma!" and just loving it. I wanted to be a Broadway star. (This feeling also came after seeing Annie and My Fair Lady with my grandparents in Houston.) I used to belt out the soundtrack to Annie in my bedroom and totally pretend that I could sing. However, this is totally un-related to anything I was going to post today! Hello, rabbit trailing!
What I was going to post is what a beautiful morning it is over here in our household!
I'm doing a bit of "working" from home today, and the benefit? Getting to sleep in until the time I'm normally at my desk! It is lovely to just move from the bed to the living room and totally skip the getting dressed part.
The little apartment is filled with the scent of coffee; the Today Show is blaring in the background (it's a segment about the weirdest addicting habits -- one is eating toilet paper. EW!); the washing machine is going; and George W. Bush's new book is just begging to be read.
That said, Christmas is in three days! I'm so excited. Hubs and I are going to take full advantage of spending time with family and each other; opening gifts; Christmas Eve candlelight services; and celebrating the true reason for the season: Jesus Christ.
"...And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, watching over their flocks by night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.' Suddenly, a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying:
'Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth, peace to those on whom His favor rests.'"
