Christmas was good...

 After a rough Christmastide, Christmas weekend and day were good.  As gifts go, this year was one of the best in years:  beautiful gray sweeter, awesome Starbucks cocoa gift set, a bike rack to take "Gypsy" bike places on "Stormy" car, heavy winter coat, two dressy western flannel shirts (one green & one turquoise), and a nice pair of snow boots (plus many small items too!).  But even more important were the memories made and those shared.  I am here spending time in KY with my beloved Robby, and with the coming winter storms, will be here longer than originally planed.  ^_^

A thought from Christmas' gone by:
THE LADEN TABLE ~ Irish Christmas Eve Tradition

After the evening meal on Christiams Eve, the Kitchen table was again set, and upon it was placed a loaf of bread filled with raisins and caraway seeds, a milk pitcher, and a large lit candle.  The door of the house would be left unlatched so that Mary and Joseph, or any wandering traveller, could partake of the welcome meal.

Such it was in days of old, and now again we will seek to do that again.  As I have begun prepping for whatever path God has for the future, I began looking over alot of notes and remembering stories from my journey, I wonder where is all this going?

Traveller Gal, out!
