Our lives had a new twist added that is extremely unpleasant. I decided to pare down and cut out many things on my to do list. I decided that some things will just be missed this year. I am focusing on gifts for grandkids. Already shipped the ones out of state. I learned years ago like the Grinch said,
And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow, Stood puzzling and puzzling: "How could it be so?" "It came with out ribbons! It came without tags!" "It came without packages, boxes or bags!" And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store." "Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!"
Well, Christmas will come without many things at our house. Maybe next year I’ll do the things I planned for this year but then again, maybe not.
