Homemade Soup, Falling Snow and my Son

Pin It

Yesterday, I made the trip to pick up Lucas from school for a Christmas visit, albeit short visit since Sarah is unable to make the trip with him.  This time of the year, the roads can be less than desirable to drive on with snow, ice, limited visibility and with my eyes getting older each year, well lets just say I am glad we made it home safe and sound.  I was suppose to pick him up on Sunday but a blizzard hit the area which prevented any driving that day ..... the highways were closed.

This next week will be spent baking cookies, catching up on news that only college kids can tell, exchanging gifts and just enjoying each others company.  A few games played perhaps or the old tradition of watching "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" 

and "The Muppet's Christmas Carol"

 .... two of our favorites that just HAVE to be viewed with a big bowl of popcorn and hot chocolate .... or maybe he is just too old for these ... I truly hope not.  I hope he is never too old to cuddle under the quilt with me.

For today, well today will be spent making homemade soup while watching the snow fall gently outside the frosty windows.  Today we will make homemade bread and sit around the kitchen table enjoying good food and each other's company.  Today I will be thankful for the fleeting moments in time that I have with him.  Today I will thank the Lord my God that I was given such a wonderful gift of a son.  

Remember to give your loved ones a hug!
