I hope your Christmas was filled with family, friends and the Birth of Christ.
Husband did not understand it was Christmas. He had to be shown how to unwrap his gifts and when he did, I had to tell him what it was as he couldn't tell if it was a package of socks or a new pair of flannel pants. Because he doesn't wear regular pants anymore, I bought him 4 new pair of those fleece pants to help keep him warm.
For the past few years, I have dreaded the Holidays. This year was so different. There was joy in my heart.
One would think that with the death of my Mother earlier this year and now with husband being so far gone, I would've been so sad. Just the opposite. I even sang a few Christmas songs to my dog!!!
Dinner was good. Tish, Jace and the kids came. There was laughter in my home. Husband, although so confused by all the activity, smiled, nodded when spoken to and seemed content.
It was all I could ask for.
Next week is the beginning of a new year. I don't know what this new year will bring, but I am ready for whatever. In all probability, husband will die, but, it's OK.
It just has to be OK.
