- where the heck did the year go?? (yes, Virginia, it does speed up as you get older)
- what did I accomplish this year (besides getting up in the morning and making a cup of tea)?
- did I make it a good year?
- what are my goals (a.k.a. resolutions) for the coming year?

As I mentioned in my previous post, I couldn't have felt more joy in giving this gift. Watching the excitement in his face as he enjoyed it was just about the best gift I've ever received. And although I still have a couple more Christmas get togethers to attend over the next couple of days, it is difficult to imagine that I will experience anything more satisfying than watching the excitement on my grandson's face.
I hope your Christmas Day turned out exactly the way you wanted it to be. Mine was!

All of a sudden we hear from the back seat, "Loud. Mom. Louder." They had been waiting all week to hear the song on the radio. "...I play my best for him, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum..." We sat listening to every word, singing to ourselves. As we were eating dinner, I said to Cormick, "Do you know what my favorite part is? Pa rum pum pum pum." "I like that, too", he says with a huge smile. Turns out he knows the story behind the song. He knows why the "little boy drummer" plays the drum and who he plays the drum for. Another "ahhhhhhh - life is good" moment.
