December Twenty Fifth

I hope that your Christmas was gentle. Or if you don't celebrate Christmas, I hope that these holidays have been gentle. Times of family can be difficult to negotiate, no?

It was wonderful to watch my baby open his gifts - his innocent joy as he played with his new toys. The other part of it - the silent struggles in my heart and mind - well, they deserve something, a post maybe, but I am tired. It is time for me to rest.

Tomorrow we will travel to visit relatives and friends. And maybe spend money on electronics. Until the alarm rings - I will rest.

Enjoy your well-deserved rest.

I had that struggle too. And I never managed to find words to express both the joy of seeing Andy bat at wrapping paper shreds and that empty raw spot at losing Jimmy. It's like trying to paint both light and darkness.

Just dropping in to say I'm thinking of you for your return to work and this season of birthdays, so close together and so different.
