Merry Christmas

Today is Christmas.  For many it is a day of excitement, joy, and family-filled.  For others it is a day of mixed emotion.  For me it is a day I face the new reality that I can’t call mom and wish her a Merry Christmas.  I can however call my siblings and wish them the Merriest of Christmases as they too are missing their mother.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.  May you always have a Christmas state of mind.

And if you need a laugh, listen to David Sedaris’ story “Stantaland Diaries.”  I laugh out loud every time I listen.
