Christmas at our house will always be a special memory for me. I loved our family gatherings and feasts. The decorations, kids playing pool, opening gifts, so much food and sweet treats… but things change. Now we gather with family via FaceTime and we’re thinking of ordering a “Heat n Eat Dinner” from the clubhouse here at the RV resort. For logistical reasons I’ve even put away our tiny tree, but the presents are wrapped and ready to go.
It’s not the Christmas of Christmases past and I’m sad that we won’t physically be a part of the gathering, but as I write this for totally different reasons, I’m struck that our story isn’t as sad and heartbreaking as so many others this year.
My Christmas wish is a for peace and healing, and may we all find solace in change.
