this is such a different christmas for me this year. the first year that neither child will be home. no preparation needed except for keith and i . it's like when you're young and first leave home and don't quite know how to do christmas for yourself. i like the calm. i like not being caught up in the over indulgence . i like choosing just how much i want to do. but i'm also missing the excitement. and i'm desperately missing the children and grandchildren. so this year it's good to focus on the small details. the essence of what i love about christmas. and try to remember that next year. merry christmas to all of you.
