This year, it doesn’t feel like Christmas. With everything that’s been going on, it’s been really hard to get into the Christmas spirit. Charlie and I are trying for Lily’s sake, but when you are visiting the hospital every other day, and possibly every day now, it’s just hard.
This is the first time I’ve ever really felt like this. Well, no, it’s been a long time since I’ve felt like this. The last was my dad’s last Christmas. That was a hard Christmas, too. I am hoping that this Christmas does not portend what that Christmas did. 🙁
The Christmas tree is up and decorated. Most of the presents are wrapped. Our yard is decorated. It’s just the Christmas cheer that’s missing.
Maybe next year.
