The Eve

It's the day before the big day and I'm actually feeling the Christmas spirit.  I honestly wasn't sure I would feel it again.  Two years ago we spent Christmas in a Palliative Care room with my Mother. Not the cheeriest of holiday memories.  Then last year, my first without her I just wished Christmas would disappear.   There were no tree, a few decorations that friends insisted I put up.  I didn't want any part of it.  It was a very sad time and I was grateful when it was over.  But this year is different.  I want to be a part of it.  I have a skraggly little tree that leans a little.  Just like me.  Lol
Tonight auntie and I will go to church to the candlelight service .  I might be just me but I think this is the prettiest church sanctuary  .anywhere
Then we will host a little drop in for family.  I'm looking forward to it all.    Merry Christmas to you all
