Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
What an exciting year it has been. I finish putting wrapping and bows on the presents under the tree, making sure that I leave enough room for Santa. I checked googles’ Santa tracker and NORAD. I normally go with NORAD, I am just saying that they need to get together with their information. Anyhow, I wanted to make sure that I would be asleep before he came so that I get my presents delivered. I am no fool. I know the rules.
All my duties are done, the presents are wrapped and under the tree. I sit and reflect that it was just last year that I was at work on Christmas eve, and I was tracking another fella. I should say a fella and his wife, you see last year I was tracking my brother and his wife as they made the trip from West coast to the East coast. A surprise visit for Nana and Mom. It was the first time in a very long time that I got to spend Christmas with my brother. It was the very first time we got together under the same roof. We had pajamas to match, we took pictures and made many memories. I was a Christmas that I will not ever forget.
The downside to Christmas and not being able to drive is that Steve is unable to spend time with his family on Christmas day. The past few years we have missed out on Christmas day with his brothers and families and parents. I know how precious time together is. It breaks my heart that is the one gift I cannot give to him.
Christmas wish for this year? It would not be for me, It would be for my family. For Mom to finally have relief from her pain, for Nana to see what blessings she has right in front of her, and the will to just open her eyes to see; for Jerry to see himself within our family; for Steve to feel the love and acceptance of his family and friends as he is, and not what he was.
Me? well, I want to pass Chemistry with a C! I am not kidding, I do not recommend anyone taking Chemistry online. I would add to that, I wish for closure from the accident. It will be 2 years in January, and I just want to heal from this surgery and get my life back.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
