It was the night before Christmas...

It was the night before Christmas and all the little people are asleep dreaming of the day to come...This is my moment, I sit in a quite house after all the noise and excitement of friends and family who called to say hello at this special time of year...  I sit (2.00am) in the house, the lights twinkling, a glass of champagne in hand, a time for reflection and a time to look forward to the promise of all to come and to think of friends I can not be with... The Santa snow is by the fire, the mince pie has been eaten as is the carrot for the reindeer and the glass of milk is half empty now... the shinning glitter and oats are scattered by the front door...  the tree is pretty with all its kitch shimmer and history...
...yes its a special moment, a time to think of the true meaning of Christmas, people in situations beyond their control, wars, famine and all things not right with the world, a time for me to count my blessing and welcome the Christmas Day in to my home with open arms...
The morning brings with it chaos, excitement and the biggest of smiles on beautiful little faces, yes its a special time, a time for family and all that we love and cherish... so I send out to you good wishes, blessings and a moment to be caught up in the magic that is Christmas... 


Have a great day and all that it holds may it be filled with love and much cherished memories for the future...

Happy happy Christmas from the Suzie Sews household...

I love that moment too - the one where everything is done and all is quiet before the big day! For me it usually involves finishing knitting the last gift (hopefully before midnight!) and getting the last few present wrapped.

Hope you had a lovely Christmas day!
