This will be my last post for this Round of Words in 80 Days. I don't have too many Christmas preparations left to do, mostly wrapping presents, but I want to spend whatever time I can this week just chilling out.
I've done fantastic on my meager list of goals for this Round and previously shared them so I won't list them again. The last goal was directing and surviving our church's Children's Christmas program. It went off last night without a hitch. It came together so amazingly that I was stunned, tearful even. None of it was my doing. Everything just plain fell into place.
The only negative was how few people attended. 99, according to our freshman usher, Raleigh on the far right below. I'm so proud of Raleigh for taking charge of the other kids who were ushering for the first time. That's his sister Lily on the far right, followed by Noah, Bethany and Payton. I'm just a softy for all these kids. Noah and Payton also had reading parts in the program, along with four high school girls.
Merry Christmas to you all.
