Thoughts for December 25

This year is very different from last year. Last year, I spent it with my daughter, grandson and the extended family. It was a stressful day, but also a great day to be with my grandson for his first Christmas. Stressful due to the family conditions my daughter was living in.

Fast forward to this year – I’m enjoying a quiet day with my son, watching football and cooking a prime rib for dinner. My granddaughter is with her mom’s family (due to illness, no visiting), and my daughter and grandson are visiting my ex and his family. It’s been a good day, albeit quiet, but good day in any event.

I am not a big Christmas person – it’s really just a day to spend copious amounts of money to show the people in our life how much we love them. That should not be a thing – we should just show them every day how much we love them with our hugs and words – gifts shouldn’t be used. But that’s just my thinking – I know others think this way but not everyone. It’s okay – I show my family all year long how much they mean to me. I don’t deny them that ever.

I am grateful today – with the love I feel from my family and the love that I give to them in return.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas day.
