“Let your heart be light…
from now on all our troubles will be out of sight…
Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.”
-from “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” by Hugh Martin
“A merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
No matter where or how you are celebrating Christmas this year, I wish you peace and joy with those you love, wherever you are, this year and always.
Spending Christmas in quarantine with only my immediate family gives me plenty of time this year to concentrate on Christmas breakfast when I am usually preparing the meal for mid-day for our guests. Christmas breakfast isn’t a replacement for our extended family gathering together, but we’ll look on the bright side this year and always. Qurantining at Christmas with my husband and daughter who have covid is different than we imagined Christmas to be this year, but we count our blessings anyway. They have only mild cases, so we have plenty of things for which to be grateful and time for home-made cinnamon rolls and a surprise breakfast casserole in the crock pot when they wake up. And then there is always making the gingerbread house together later on in the day this year as we always do; it always makes us laugh together, which is something we need during this pandemic.
Life is good; carpe diem, friends…and enjoy this magical day!
