Wrapping it Up
Just finished wrapping all the gifts that I purchased this afternoon! I love the selection process, but the wrapping and making the presentation special is my favorite part!
Every year, I find just the right gift wrap and/or gift bags and trimmings for each of the kids, our friends, our family, and our friends. Every package is different, yet identifiable.
Yes, it’s probably an OCD thing, but since most every gift is now from Santa? It works. For us. And? The paper has to be rich-in design, heft, meaning, for each recipient.
With the forecast of a nor’easter this weekend, I’m afraid I will be wrapping up this journey a few days earlier than I planned and want to, as well. Better to be safe than sorry.
The news starting tracking the storm, so I was aware. Then Craig, my brother, Dan—each one called or texted to make certaim that I was aware of the pending weather. Each asked, “need more time?” Or “should you stay or should you leave?” Or “be safe, you are always welcome whenever you need to be here”. How lucky am I!????
I have to wrap it up a few days early…so that I can be home with Craig and the kids, decorate for Christmas (yes… The turkeys and pumpkins are still all over my home!). However, as soon as the kids return to class, I will depart for Needham—to be with mom, share in her journey, and hopefully be a help. Thanks be to God for He is Good!
