Christmas Eve 2021


Another pandemic Christmas has arrived and just when we thought we had this virus under control, it twists and reminds us that we do not.

I confess, it is easy to get depressed about what we may not be doing and why we may not be seeing as the magical morning arrives, but I think we need to look at the situation through another lens. 

COVID has worked its way into parts of the family, but we are smart enough to change our plans and recognize the potential threat while still maintaining the contact. I think we will be reading The Polar Express tonight via Zoom rather than gathered together around a Christmas tree. 

We have so much to be thankful for and so many plans and expectations. We must be careful not to lose the holiday perseverating about what we are not doing. Sure, there will not be a big extravagant brunch today nor a huge meal and gift exchange tomorrow. And I will miss them. But, I make the best French Toast in the world and I have a lot of bubbly ready for mimosas and so brunch will still be served--just on a smaller scale.


Merry Christmas--find a reason to be happy and share the spirit, even if your plans have changed.
