Christmas 2021

Christmas Morning at Home

Merry Christmas 2021

What a year! It began with an insurrection and ended with the resurgence of the pandemic in the form of the Omicron Variant. In between there were trials and murders and unrest making it a turbulent world. It can sometimes be hard to find peace amongst all of the upheaval and unrest.

But this morning when I walked downstairs after waking, Chris had the room set like a Norman Rockwell scene. A classic Christmas with the tree alight and a fire in the fireplace.  It was a great start to the morning with a cup of coffee and, well, yes another mimosa. 

I received a surprise gift of an Apple Watch--a retirement gift since I cannot wear it into where I work. But, I only have about 28 hours of actual work time left before I'm retired, officially. Mentally I think I may have checked out last week after my retirement ceremony. 

I pray that each of you are having a good holiday. It can be a very difficult time of the year for a multitude of reasons. Some of my family members are quarantined and we have been working to celebrate the season with each of them. 

May the blessings of the season be with each of you and may you most importantly find peace and hope--because that is the true message of the season: 

There is Hope!
