"I bet Jesus didn't have to write thank-yous to the wise men!" This was my oldest child's last sentence as she sullenly sunk into her chair ... to write her thank-yous from Christmas. I retort, "Yeah, but he died for our sins so we're going to let it go. Now get going on those cards."
Around the world, people counted down the minutes to New Year's. If you're anything like me, you were counting down the minutes till bedtime. It crossed my mind to reset the clocks and/or watch the European countdown in order to get the kids to bed early without them feeling like they've been robbed.
