what love sounds like

I am not sure what I did to deserve these guys.

But all of them have made our lives more beautiful.

Amber messages me this week and says, "I know this is random, but I have something for you, and I'd rather give it to you in person. Can I stop by on Thursday."

(It was indeed random, since her last Facebook post was from Denmark.)

So we make a date for Thursday morning, and then this happens:

They're all home from college - kids we know from shows, from choir, from forever. They are some of my favorite people in the world. When I asked if they were out caroling at 10 am they said, "No, just for you."

It was sort of impossible not to cry.
(But I waited until they left.)

They came bearing music (with choreography), cookies from Jack who couldn't make it and warm brownies.

Wait - not just brownies, a pan of brownies ON TOP OF BROWNIES!!!

Our kids were in school, Rico had just left for a coffee date, so it was a private concert. "Rudolph", "Jingle Bells", and "We Wish You A Merry Christmas". There were lots of hugs and laughs and Merry Christmases. I told them where to find Rico, and rumor has it hunted him down and serenaded the senior coffee party at McDonalds.

The world is a good place.
People like this make it even better.
Merry Christmas Amber and Erin and Samantha, and Emily and Steven, and Nathan, and Abby and Sandy - thanks for making this Christmas full of the good stuff.
