A Moment

It's 12:23 am on December 23. I just walked the puppy and now am lying on the couch with her so that she will calm down and go back to sleep. 
I should go to bed. 
I know that Chester will have me up in less than 5 hours so that she doesn't die of starvation 
I should go to bed. 
I have cookies to bake and errands to run and presents to wrap tomorrow. Today. 
I should go to bed. 
But the lights. The glow of Christmas lights fills me with peace and wonder and serenity. I am alone with my puppy and my two cats and my thoughts. 
I don't want to go to sleep. 
Tomorrow will be chaos. 
I want to enjoy the lights.
