Happy Christmas

Well it’s Christmas Eve. And where has today gone. I was up at 5am, I couldn’t sleep as I had a hospital appointment and I did not want to miss it! I walked the dog had a cup of coffee and then we set off for the hospital.

When we got there we had been sat waiting room for a few minutes, when in burst Father Christmas! What really took my eye though was this lovely Nativity set all knitted lovingly.

The grandchildren are so excited I have just heard from our youngest son that they are tucked up in bed . Apparently they were bouncing off the wall or even ceiling.

The tree is ready and full of memories the presents are wrapped and waiting to be delivered.

My Christmas nails are all sparkly and ready to celebrate. The table is ready to set and have food upon.

Now I have to go and prepare the vegetables for tomorrow. There will be, brussel sprouts, coliflour cheese, roast potatoes, parsnips, sweet potatoes, onions, and carrots.

Our lads will be here with us and on boxing Day our we will all go and join our youngest son and his lovely family.

I am exhausted and I am off to bed. I want to wish everyone, every single one of you a very happy Christmas and a healthy New Year. Thank you for all your support I live you all .

May Santa bring you everything you desire

Mary and Jo Part 24

Today is the twenty fourth day of Advent, leading up to Christmas. I would like to re-run my take on the Nativity story. I first wrote this in 2011, in the style of prosetry. This though is another brand new chapter.

Mary awoke a looked at the star, it was brightest up in the sky by far. “Gabe said there would be star to say just where we are do you think we are safe here?” Jo told her that God would not let harm come to his son so they need not fear.

“What shall we call him?” Jo asked, “Gabe had told me his name” Mary whispered. “I want to choose his name” said Jo. “Okay” replied Mary, ” what do you want his name to be.” Jo thought the he smiled and replied, ” Jesus, let’s call him Jesus”. Mary smiled a huge smile and happily agreed, knowing that was the child’s chosen name.

“I shall teach him my trade I shall love him he will be my boy, Mary we will show him so much joy.” He will have a childhood just like all other children they both agreed.

The angels looked down and smiled, the knew the right parents had been found. Later that evening Mary began her labor.
