I also won't be open on the 26th or for the rest of the week.
Yes I know it's the 2nd biggest shopping day when people go out and spend their Christmas money.
I don't care.
You see, my kids will be home for Christmas. All four of them. At the same time.
The food, the laughter, the stories.
The late night soul searching conversations.
The snarky comments.
The glasses of wine.
I love those four people that I brought into this world more than I can ever put into words.
When they were still living at home circumstances were such that I had to divide my time into so many pieces that I felt there was never enough of it to properly go around.
if I could turn back time...
I would read them more stories
I would dance around the living room with them
I would really focus on what they were saying instead of with a distracted ear because there was always so much to do
I will spend the majority of that time in the kitchen- feeding my soul to over flowing because it has to last a long time. Until the next time all four of them will be home again.
At the same time.
