On the fifth day of Christmas
my true love gave to me it was all about…FRIENDS.
…and I’ll bet a bunch of you thought I was going to say CRAFT!
Yes, there was a lot of crafting going on today. A bunch of librarians sitting around doing crafty stuff. That was the order of the day. However, for me it was less about the craft and more about the people. Spending time with friends.
In the days leading up to this #blog12daysxmas challenge that I started, I indicated that I would be mostly blogging about things with a Christmas flavour. I’ve talked about family, post-Christmas sales, more sales, and love. Gathered around that manger in a stable many, many, many years ago stood a family (check); there were no sales (ok, I stuffed that one); there was love (check) and there were friends…call them angels, shepherds even a few out-of-town guests. So…(check).
To all my friends who I have seen today or have not seen for some time, you are my angels and my shepherds and, very occasionally, my out-of-town guests (who are particularly welcome when they bring gold! Less so when it’s frankincense or myrrh.)
