After days of celebrating and a day with no power in our house, mom is wiped out. Not because she ate too much, there is no room for that, but moms are the managers of celebrations and that involves being on your feet for long periods of time. I find it a great joy and a blessing to prepare food and celebrate many times over with family and friends. However, I am thinking that a quiet remainder of the Christmas Octave for this 30 weeks pregnant, old lady might be a good thing.
Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will. Luke 2:14
