Looking Back on Christmas
Cherished family, insightful church service, beautiful tree, and a whole lot of gratitude. Luminarias up and down our street. Neighbors dropping off baked goods. Books and more books. Marvelous music. Traditional dishes. Some old baseball gloves and a great game of catch. Phone calls to relatives. A dog wandering about looking for morsels (or easy touches to provide them). Conversations to remember. Memories of some dysfunctional Christmases. Fleeting thoughts about the past year and the coming one but with a sharp focus on soaking in The Right Now. Lots of candles. A cozy fire. And at least one strange gift.
