I am the most fortunate woman in the planet. After a day of last minute secretive shopping and wrapping, baking for family and for good friends, one hour of family conversation around the dinner table: an expectant dinner of Brazilian Coconut Tilapia and rice, and salad. A dessert of pie made by Number Five. A surprise gift to the family given by Number One of a new board game which we are now beginning to play. Christmas carols played on the piano by Maria and joined by all in preparation for our music ministry in the morning Mass.
We are ready for You Lord, down to the clean kitchen floor.
