I woke this morning not knowing what day it was or what the date was. After coffee, I realized it was my granddaughter’s birthday, so I sent her a text wishing her a happy birthday.
I would normally be counting down the days until Christmas, but right now I am just moving through the days hour by hour. I am very aware of so much and I have the spirit of Christmas inside, but celebrating the holiday is just off my radar.
Six days until Christmas — that must feel so close to so many people, but right now, I cannot even think that far ahead. My heart and my mind are elsewhere.
