Preparations are in full swing, and everyone here seems to have Christmas in their heart.....LM, Teddy and I are off to drive a good friend to the airport this morning, and then we will come back to begin cooking our Christmas Eve dinner, for which, Sara and Samantha will join us....exciting times for the wee ones, and us, too.
Much love to all, and may your Christmas be exactly the way you would like.
Int he words of one of my faves, celebrate it all and embrace the holidays, one and all, for whatever reason you like.
Love, peace and deep gratitude for you all this Christmas Eve.

Grief and loss is a natural part of life when one has left work and a wonderful group of co-workers with whom one shared such camaraderie. I've taken steps to increase my energy and centeredness. A personal trainer is putting me through some tough paces and I am talking with a counselor. This too shall pass.
I'd been fighting the grief symptoms when I needed to go with them and embrace it as a natural life event. We shall see how long I can keep my perspective.
Otherwise, we had a fun birthday party for Teddy last week, and are now looking forward to having a simple Christmas celebration centered around the children.
Sending you all wishes for celebrations of your own choice to be filled with light, love, peace and joy.
