What a blessing to be able to invite and feed 20 people for dinner on Christmas! I felt so blessed to be able to cook and provide for my family and outside friends. A blessing to have conversations with my nieces, sleepovers with my young niece Lauren, and guy talk with my nephew Andrew!!! I especially enjoyed my runs with my brother who in probably back in New Orleans right now. Today gives me time to reflect on Christmas with my family and the 2008 year.
