'Twas the Write Before Christmas: Seek the Light

In the dawning of 6:30 in the morning, one set of preschooler feet rumbles down the staircase and taptaptapptaptap runs across chilly wood floors all in the excitement of making the Christmas tree dance with lights.

We snuggle on the couch, wiping sleep from morning eyes before migrating to the floor to build towers and the kitchen to make breakfast.

It glows all morning, through the rough and tumble and the cleaning and the getting ready for school

Don't turn it off, he exclaims, when I head over to press the button before we leave the house.

Let it stay glowing!

My boy, he is only four, but he seeks the light and we enter into it from eyes open until eyes closed; we bask in its brilliant beauty, its soft glow all gray day, long after I've spent time thumbing through well-worn pages of His story written out and unfolded.

And I think I could learn a thing or two.

All through December, we're working on making the heart merry and bright through creating. Join us?
