Watching "Ellen"....she has the most beautiful backdrop (is that what it is called? the picture in the back of the stage) of a house in the snow, with a deep porch & glowing windows in the dusk.
The kind of house i would have liked to have lived in forever. Trees about, on a farm, a house full of kids ( at least 4) Husband working the fields. You cook for weeks prior to the Holidays and everyone comes home. Everyone is happy ( i know, not everyone is happy all the time, but it is my dream) no one is ever sick, bad things don't happen, just love and happiness. Knocking the snow off their boots in the mudroom, shouts of "Hello" how nice to see you, have you here..... my how everyone has grown..... coffee/cocoa is on by the stove, go sit by the fire and warm up...how was the drive?
Doesn't it sound nice? Happy, normal?
Take Care All & God Bless......Have a Merry Christmas.....
