Making it to Christmas

I have a terrible track record with Christmas: I'm usually sick on the couch, sicker in the ER, or very very sick in an inpatient room.

But not this year. Now that it's December 24, I can say that without immediately fearing I've jinxed myself yet again. What's more, no one else is (seriously) sick, either. In 29 years, I can't honestly remember when we've all been able to say that.

So for everyone who's celebrating Christmas, may it be a merry and healthy (as possible) one. Let's be thankful for the people around us, let's be extra compassionate to the people who still have to spend Christmas in the hospital, let's celebrate the new additions at the Christmas table this year, and let's remember the people who should still be with us with love.

As I was reminded just yesterday, it is the season for hope.

Merry Christmas!

I'm reading this post in February. I don't know the rest of the story so I hope you made it through the holidays well. Also, though it is February, it's still nice to read something where...don't know how to phrase this...someone is wishing such good thoughts for all. That's the real cheer of christmas. Good will toward men and all. Not just words.
