We are not big on celebrating... whatever people have decided you needed to celebrate on the last day of the year. We let our kids stay up... if they want to... until midnight. However, we are usually nice and cozy in our beds by that time.
Tonight will be no different. Our 16 year old will be at the church with her fellow youths enjoying food and games at a lock in. That is about the only "celebrating" you will see around here.
The rest of us will wake up tomorrow morning and say, "It's 2010... cool." Then we will go on with our day... just like it is any other day... you know...
...because it is.
We like to think that we celebrate every. single. day. the Lord gives us. (Some better than others.) So, if you stay up tonight and do... whatever it is that you do... God Bless ya. I will be under thousands of blankets, curled up next to my beloved, dreaming of sunshine, warmth and no snow.
