2/3rds There

We are enjoying empty-nesting; have been for years. Part of the joy is knowing our three children have found their spouses and career tracks and are happy. It's also fun watching them make their own patterns, routines and traditions. This year Liz & Jeff (front) and Anna & Isaac (back) are able to be with us in Santa Barbara but not Kelly & Luke. They are staying in Illinois with Kelly's mom, brother and wife and sister. Plus Luke has duties at Elgin Covenant. So it's a joy having 2/3rds of the family gathered and it's also right that 1/3rd is off on their own.
Christmas Eve afternoon is deliciously quiet with some dancing, some shopping, some reading and I'm at the table with fresh coffee ruminating and grateful.
