Last night was Christmas at my house. It went so well! My oldest daughter, her husband and their 17 year old daughter (my daughters step daughter), my sober daughter and her husband (she was radiant with hand made gifts for everyone), and brother (my son) and his girlfriend (a lovely normal girl). Laughter, Greek pizzas, presents, a fire in the back yard in the burn barrel, Theo trying to sit on everyone and I even brought out the tap shoes for all to try. Ahhhhh I enjoyed myself so much.
Today is work and then a drive across town for a birthday party for my Sponsor.....yikes, I haven't a gift yet! At least that will be the last gift I have to buy for the season!
Tomorrow morning I will get up early early to drive over the sober daughters and ride with her and her husband for a 6am surgery downtown in our beautiful Medical Center.
I will stay in the moment as best I can so as not to feel overwhelmed. Thank goodness I've had lots of practice on how to do that.
Oh and PS: My children are all so pretty. Really.
