I’m one of those people who hasn’t really enjoyed Christmas for years. (Which I hope is safe to say after the fact.) Too much family “stuff” going on (in the extended rather than the immediate). We almost escaped town for this Christmas but that got cancelled in the fall – so here we stayed.
Today, I realized that I’ve made it through another “holiday season” – a little worse for wear but still standing. (I do love being with my kids and their thoughtful gifts to Imbi and me reminded us of how much we are loved. We have incredible kids!) But, I think this is the last year we will do Christmas this way (and yes, I’ve talked to Imbi about this…in fact, she’s been saying it for years).
Next year. Christmas Eve will be our family celebration. Christmas day will be spent doing something that makes more sense in what we profess to believe. I’m not sure what that will be…and perhaps you have suggestions…but I can tell you that for my sanity it needs to be about the One in whom I place my faith…and not about me.
