Christmas reflections

Oh to be a small child during Advent.
There is no planning, only wonderment and surprise - the lights! the tree! the gifts!
There is no concern if we are "ready" for Christmas.
There is no list or expectations.
There is a story.
A story we tell over and over.
A baby in the manger.
And then Christmas is here. We are still not ready.
Mary and Joseph were not ready either.
