I had such big plans for this Christmas. It is my grandson's first Christmas and I was going to decorate the house to the hilt and do so many things. I was off to such a good start. I put up the tree and set out some of my Christmas trinkets. I put away the table setting we had for Thanksgiving and set the table for Christmas dinner. My grandson and I went shopping at Target and lingered in the Christmas section. I thought I was so smart.
And then on the Flu Bug bit. The entire family and all our friends got sick. And before you say it, I DID get my flu shot. Two weeks later, I began to think about Christmas again.
So much for big plans. It got me to thinking though. We are not promised tomorrow. Delight in every moment you're given. They are a gift from God.
