He HADN’T stopped Christmas from coming!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!
(from How The Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss)
Well, while fixing Christmas lights on a customer’s house yesterday evening, my husband sprained his ankle. Since then we’ve had one minor fiasco after another. But as I work on Christmas presents tonight (handmade stick horses for some special kiddos in my life!) and enjoy the warmth of home and the knowledge that my family is well and safe (excepting, of course, the sprained ankle), I just keep thinking how thankful I am that Christmas will come just the same. Somehow or other it will come through beautifully, as it always does. And though the “grinch” (that’s what I’m choosing to call any fiasco that interferes with Christmas cheer) may have prevented me from posting a quote yesterday (Jon’s ankle was propped up on this very desk until well past midnight), it will NOT keep Christmas from coming. Cheers!
