I was planning on sending out Christmas cards, but when I looked at my calendar I realized it's next week! Too late to send cards, so I am taking this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a Happy Holiday season! Whatever holiday you celebrate, I hope it's spent in peace, comfort, and the company of loved ones.
Holidays are a time for family. Some families get larger as babies and in-laws get added. And some, like mine, get smaller, as the older generation slips away, one by one. Things are different. Thankfully I've never been one to dwell on the past, and certainly not on loss. I'm grateful that I got to have the people in my past that I did. And although I sincerely miss each and every one of them, I have lots of good memories to remember them by. And that helps. Part of my wish for you is that you remember the good times, and may we all continue to make new memories - good memories.
By the way, I did the same with my shopping; thinking I had weeks to go. Not so! But the cookies are baked, out of town gifts sent, and shopping accomplished - mostly. Now to figure out a Christmas dessert, and what to wear to dinner.
