So this was Christmas…
How was your Christmas? Was it happy? Was it memorable?
Mine was … for a gazillion reasons. Some of which I can talk about, and will share below, and some which I cannot (or will not, for the sake of my most special relationships) go into here.
Suffice to say that, in a number of ways, it was brought home hard to me just how precious and fragile and sometimes fleeting the best things in life can be.
The past ten days have been wonderful, happy, poignant, frightening, life-affirming and sweet.
I learned how truly great my family is. How great my husband’s family are. And how much I need to appreciate every bit of that RIGHT NOW.
I will say no more but share a couple of snaps from our Yuletide gatherings… please enjoy.
And please… linger a little with your loved ones, if you haven’t done so already.
City Christmas first.
Crowded mall for Christmas parade (a few minutes after I had pulled myself together from little claustrophobic meltdown – most embarrassing. I am hopeless in a crush!)…
And then, the Bush Christmas, here at Granite Glen…
My sister Jeanie‘s ingenious fresh-baked dip-and-bread offering… delish! (Let’s call for the recipe, shall we?)
Boxing Day (or Recovery/Cricket-watching Day) is also our nephew’s birthday.
How was your Christmas-Boxing Day period?
