It has been a while since I last was here. Yule has come and gone as well as Christmas and the New Year. It seems all like a whirlwind of events to be honest. Yet maternal duties called and of course I answered. I was lucky enough to visit my daughter and grandkids the week before Christmas and spend time with them. We arrived on Yule and I enjoyed celebrating with them. We opened a couple gifts and left the rest for Christmas morning.
We arrived home Christmas Eve. Christmas day both my sons were able to be with us. My oldest came and shared lunch with Vincent and I. Since it was just the three of us, I prepared us each a Cornish hen with dressing and green beans; a simple meal for a quiet simple gathering.
Later in the afternoon my middle son and his fiancé came. They were able to spend the night and join us celebrate a belated Christmas with Vincent’s daughter and her husband.
Here I was going on and on about how my Christmas was going to be quiet with nothing special happening. When all was said and done I was able to be with all my children for the holidays. It was truly a blessing that I had not expected.
Our New Year was spent quietly at home with just Vincent and I. Although that is how we have spent our time the last few years. I will admit that I have grown to enjoy celebrating November 1st as the coming of the New Year. It just seems to feel more natural to me.
I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to all of you who have sent me emails and comments in regards to my oldest son and his situation. I appreciate so much the kind words, thoughts, and prayers that many of you have shared with me. Continue to remember him. He is my oldest yet to me he will always be my little boy. Yes, I know he is 27 but it is hard to watch your child go through pain no matter how old they may become. He is doing well and is adjusting well despite all that has happened.
Also thank you for your concerns in regards to my absence. I am in the process of getting a new computer system as my other decided to take a break. My middle son was able to take my hard drive home with him and download all my info off so that I did not lose any of my pictures, music, and/or writings. It is so nice to have a computer nerd in the family.
I have been answering much of my emails via my iphone and occasionally I hook my laptop up to the internet. I have enjoyed the break yet will be honest and say that I am ready to get back to writing. I also have missed keeping up with everyone else’s blogs as well. So although I am sure it will take me a while I will slowly catch up with everyone’s events and posts as well as get back to my own. Wishing all of you a very blessed New Year.
