Digging Deep To Find Christmas Enjoyment
Christmas is here! It’s hard to believe another year has passed.
I have to admit, I’m still feeling a bit off from the last few days, but I am also determined to get out of my funk and lift myself back up.
And so, yesterday I went on a hunt for partridge for our Christmas dinner. Well, after visiting 5 butchers, including 1 specialty shop, I gave up on partridge for this year and settled on a surprise find of Kangaroo as it sounded like an adventurous challenge for two Canadians. So today is a quiet day at home and a Christmas dinner of Kangaroo. And if I get my way, there will be snuggling while watching a few Christmas movies like Elf and Love Actually. It should be fun.
Tomorrow, Christmas Day, will be another lazy day at home. Maybe we’ll find an outdoor skating rink and enjoy some time outdoors together. Maybe another Christmas movies. And then, we will be spending the evening with friends for dinner and I get to give her the gift I’ve spent months preparing. I am so excited to give it to her, I just know she’s going to love it.
And so, while I know my heart may be a little heavy this year as we face yet another Christmas without the light and love of a child, I also know that we will find some enjoyment in our quiet celebration. It’s exactly what we need right now.
I hope every one else out there finds it within themselves to enjoy their own special festivities, in their own way. Knowing that many of other will also not have the Christmas they have been dreaming of, I also encourage everyone, myself included, to remember to be kind to yourself and practice self-care.
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas.
