Life sometimes catches you completely unawares.
I wanted to stop for a few moments at the end of the day here this Christmas Day to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and just a general Happy Holidays for whatever winter holiday you might celebrate.
We have managed to survive through Christmas this year. It has been a difficult one for my family. We’ve all missed my dad greatly and his absence was definitely felt this day.
Both of my grandparents are in their final days of life but it was a great blessing that they both made it through Christmas and through the collective effort of my amazing family were able to have them both at the festivities. While Christmas definitely looked different this year, we were still together as a family and there was still lots of love to be shared even if it was a little less joyous than in years past.
I hope to make another post later this week but with how things have been going that may not happen so I will say right now that I wish you all a safe and happy new year. Hopefully you’ll hear from me again but if not, I’ll see you all in 2017!
