Merry Christmas

Day 82

Our Christmas has been very quiet which is what we had planned. It was our first Christmas without Mom.

I had plans to write about many of my Christmas memories, but that will wait until next year. For now we are recalling other memories and staying in the moment.

Last night was harder somehow. That’s the hard thing about grief — you never know what will bring you face-to-face with the reality of the loss.

We enjoyed seeing our 16 month granddaughter on video with her gifts and sharing calls and texts with family. Such good reminders about the joy of living the life we have been given.

Now we are going to drive down to our daughter’s house to enjoy a little family time. We are not the only people in this family that has experienced loss.

I hope your day has been joyful spent with people you love and care for.

Merry Christmas 🎄🎁
