Holidays Are Different Now

This is very first Christmas without my mother. I really miss her very much, each and every day. Holidays are different now.

It was very challenging to celebrate Christmas today. My mother was missing. My daughter was working another long shift at the medical center where she is a charge nurse. Thankfully, we’ll be able to get in a few days to have another Christmas celebration.

I spent the day with my fiance. We exchanged gifts. We made chicken cordon bleu for dinner. We watched an interesting Hallmark Christmas movie. Several people called us, and we made several phone calls as well.

There are several inches of snow outside this evening. I’m happy that I can work from home tomorrow, given the wintry weather. I was unable to go to either nursing home to see residents this past week.

I’m trying to comfort myself with so many memories of my wonderful mother. She was very generous at Christmas, with her love and concern, as well as with presents.
