Gotta give a little post love to my husband. Every now and then he’ll totally surprise me.
Tuesday, he was out of town on business, but he knew Charlie Brown and his gang would be celebrating Christmas at 7:00.
Since our first year of marriage, Snoopy, Charlie and the rest of the Peanut’s gang have been a holiday tradition. As our children came into the picture, it became nearly as big an event as Christmas morning, itself. We always have the tree all light up, candles burning, and homemade cookies in hand as we gather around the tv.
Because business had taken him out of town for the day, I’d planned on recording our beloved show and all of us watching it together the next night.
But being the husband and father that he is, he made it back with about 30 minutes to spare. The boy must’ve been going about….well, I don’t want to even think about it. He must have been driving like me! Frightening.
He could’ve stayed out of town, sat around with buddies and watched the Victoria’s Secret runway show on television. Instead he raced (and I mean raced) home to watch the Peanuts with his wife and three daughters.
Sitting there with the four of them, laughing at Snoopy while munching on cookies, I knew that even if I didn’t get another thing, I’d already had my Christmas Magic.
Make a Little Magic this Christmas,
