Glee and absolute giddiness propelled

Glee and
absolute giddiness propelled the girls from the deepest of sleeps this a.m. They
did their best to be quiet, but stiffled giggles and squeals slipped out from
the corners of their mouths. I can never go back to sleep once I am awakened by
their sounds on Christmas morning. I love to listen to them discovering the
treasures in their stockings. Voices filled with excited exclamation of "How did
mom know I wanted this?" keep my heart wide awake while my eye-lids still lie
closed. I curl up under the comforter, warm from R's body heat, and hope, just
for once, that this time never ends.
