Did not do well at taking your advice or my own advice! Did a little bit too much and, by Christmas Eve, was flat on my back!!! However, the thing about being in remission is that I was able to come downstairs on Christmas Day and watch my grandaughter and family open gifts. Fortunately, my family took over from there and prepared the meal, cleaned the house afterwards and served the eggnog and desserts. So, I did enjoy my Christmas after all!
I think that I try to compensate for missing my daughter and having to go through another Holiday without her. Especially since she died just 10 days prior to Christmas and some of my last moments with her were spent planning Christmas! Since her passing, I have either been sick or hospitalized every Christmas! I think I am in some sort of cycle :-( But, I am trying, very hard, to deal with it!
I hope that you, and everyone of our friends, have a joyous new year!
