My daughter agreed to host the family dinner on Christmas Eve at her house (thank you!) so that means I won’t have to. It’s not that I don’t love company, but it is a lot of work and I guess I am just getting old and tired. I’ll bring food and help clean up afterwards. We all will.
As usual, I have too much to do during the holidays, but I have a warm home and a family that loves me. I have it all. The winter storm that blew through Oklahoma Friday and Saturday did little to Enid.
I heard on TV that there were power outages on the east side of town but it didn’t affect us. We ate chili, made cookies, drank hot tea and watched a movie; a rare day in the house with just my husband and dog. We were warm and snug. Thankfully the storm was not as bad as forecast. Not everyone was so lucky.
Now that we are thawing out, I’ll do a bit of writing – maybe more than a bit. One of the wonderful things about being a writer is you can write anytime you have a moment. Writers always have ideas swimming around in their heads just dying to get out.
I hope your Christmas will be warm. I hope you eat too much (even fudge and cookies). But most of all, I hope you experience love and the reason for the season. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
