This one will be short, because I want to be visiting family, and everyone reading should be out doing the same (or whatever it is that floats your holiday boat).
Merry Everyday and Happy Always.
At Thanksgiving I was running a marathon, so I didn’t have time for existential reflection about it what I am thankful for. Today I am celebrating Christmas and I have the opportunity to reflect (briefly). Right now, I am writing a blog post that maybe someone will read and while this may not be the most inspirational, maybe someone will be able to take something from it. I am drinking coffee and Baileys out of my new Grinch mug that my amazing husband gave me. Shortly I will be getting ready to go visit my in-laws for Christmas wishes, hugs, and if I play my cards right, more coffee. I’m listening to my favourite holiday album, Mi Navidad, by Andrea Bocelli. I can’t be with my family today, but I was able to call them this morning. I didn’t have a seizure this morning. I can’t say that I won’t have one later today, on Boxing Day or any other time, but I didn’t have one so far today and today is what matters today.
Whatever today means to you, whether something important or just any other Monday, I hope it’s a wonderful day.
Also, I have a number of family members and friends who work in essential services. Some are police officers, some are firefighters, some are in corrections. They may not be able to be with their families today. I’d like to say a big “thank you” to all of the Officers, Firefighters, Sheriffs and Paramedics who are out there helping keep everyone safe today. Thank you.
