Our little home performed admirably for our annual Christmas Eve celebration, a gathering of my brother's family and mine. Thirteen of us seated around the dining room table, enjoying our traditional German meal by candlelight. The dynamics of this group continually changing. This year, three little ones all under three graced us with their sweet energy. Two other little souls patiently waiting in the wings. Spirits of loved ones now passed infusing our evening, as well. This Christmas Day I am counting my blessings, of which there are many.
