In the darkness of the early hours

Great joy…in the darkness of this morning, while the only light in the living room is the Christmas tree…Rachel and I watched the news channel !  I was up early while the house was dark and quiet.  That happens at “my age”.  And then the fuss and cries came from Rachel’s home – a call to a grandpa to come to her!  She and I enjoyed some quiet time together and I have to say she sure seems to like the news channel.

We eventually had a drink together – Rachel had a bottle, I had a coffee – and in the quietness of the house laying in my arms she went back to sleep.  Magic is what it feels like. If only we could bottle those moments.
