I received a Bose Bluetooth wireless speaker for Christmas in the mail today. “Desperado” by the Eagles was the maiden song that I played from my Samsung Galaxy S3 mobile phone. Out of nowhere, my eighteen year old daughter appeared on hearing the familiar strains that she’d been hearing since the womb. She sang every word and pranced around like a rock star. Then she plopped down on the sofa next to me. She immediately linked my new speaker to her iPhone 6. The next thing I knew, she hijacked the speaker, playing tune after tune. When does dad get to play with his new toy? It’s his speaker, right?
My son arrives from college within the hour. I am blessed with abundances beyond my imagination. Today, I waited in the car as she grocery shopped. The house will soon be filled with the energies of my two knuckleheads very soon. I can’t wait to watch them eat, bicker, and laugh over inane nonsense. My greatest gift is their joy.
What’s your GREATEST gift this Christmas/holiday season? Thanks for taking a moment to share, friends.
