Life moves so quickly these days!
I took the time thankfully to read a wonderful novella written by Lori Copeland titled "Unwrapping Christmas." I could have been Rose in this book a few years ago.
I've been warned not to fall back into the trap of doing too much and being too busy by my own very wise 14 year old son.
I think the older we get the more we want to recapture the meaning of the season and the beauty of Christmas in our homes and our hearts. This is the book that helps us realize the importance of first serving our own families before we serve others. This is what God intended for us to do. I bought this book on sale for $3.99 at the Naples bookstore and it is worth so much more than that!
We are waiting to find out when we'll be moving back North where we will all have the opportunity to become involved in activities that we enjoy. I hope we don't lose the closeness we've found living with "just us" here in Italy, when we get reimmersed in life in a wonderful American community in the Tri-Border region.
