I will be busy wrapping and baking today for our family gathering tomorrow.
Church tonight but not at midnight just the fact I am going is a miracle, so long ago I just stopped making the time. Mind you I never stopped praying or giving thanks but this will be an odd but beautiful evening of wonderful music and uplifting words I am sure. One of the members of the garden club asked me if I would like to go with her and I said yes. 🙂
Please remember our families are made up of many personalities and as you come together or spend it alone know you truly are not alone and that no family is like the TV SITCOMS, that is just writers wanting a perfect family as well 🙂 we see how the actors truly are not who they portrayed, so keep it real and try to have a wonderful holiday.
I will be with my family for the first time in 10 years and though I am worried, I was mostly saddened as I shopped for the perfect gifts for them because I do not know them anymore. People change, tastes change and even their needs change. I felt like I was shopping for strangers and that hurt, which sadly I did not think I would feel these emotions when I am so happy to be included. Mind you they no longer know me either do they. Some of you know more about me than my family ever will. You have read the stories saw the pictures and know who I am and I am glad you are there, you will continue to be the presents in my life 🙂
Stay safe in this crazy world of ours, hold those you love tightly because we all know we are not promised a tomorrow.
Peace On Earth for you all
