I Dream of Peace

26 Dec

Blog Post #247

Whew! That was a lot of cooking and a lot of flying paper and a lot of merriment!

Our Christmas celebration was a jam-packed day of togetherness: opening gifts, eating, cooking the big turkey dinner, eating, drinking, eating, playing board games, eating… Oh, and laughter — lots of laughter!

Today, Boxing Day, was much, much quieter. I can’t believe it’s all over and done.  All the preparation, decorating, wrapping — done! All that’s left is the makings of turkey casseroles, soup and sandwiches — enough to last through the week!

But, I feel full. Full of not only good food, but full of love, joy and peace. I’m not sure why, but I also feel full of hope — hope — that my daughters will grow and continue to be healthy and happy, that my husband and I will, also, remain in good health and live each day to the fullest. Hope — that the world will move towards tolerance and love and strive to end poverty, hatred, and war. Hope — that we will all find our way to cherish and care for each other — all of us, everywhere.

I dream of Peace on Earth.
