Seasonal Showers

My daughter loves Christmas. Despite hating to bathe, she was belting out Christmas carols from the shower the other day. It was the sound of pure joy. On Christmas morning, we noticed her get out of bed at four in the morning, peek under the tree and retreat to her room with glee in her step.  Although she looks forward to Christmas for all the presents she will get, I notice that what brings her the most pleasure is giving presents. She doesn’t know she enjoys that the most. If you asked her what she likes most, she would say getting presents, but when we are opening gifts, I see how she delights in giving. I enjoy her joy every day. Christmas is like a joyful meteor shower, with so many little moments.
