How was your Christmas? Mine was awesome…
My how life has changed in the past several years. I remember a time, not too long ago, when I chose not to celebrate Christmas at all. It was 2007, and I’d lost my Dad a month before Christmas while I was away in Europe. That was a day that everything changed. He was the glue for the adopted and step-family I had, and when he died, nothing was the same.
But, that was six years ago. Everything is different now!
My husband and his parents are my family. And, I have my step-mom and her guy, and of course my brother, his wife and my niece. Although we’re in Alberta and the rest of my family is in BC, they’re all I need, even if it’s just a short conversation on the phone – Christmas is awesome with them in my life.
And, of course, there’s my friends who I call family, too. This year, Barry and I went up to north Calgary (Springbank) to enjoy Christmas dinner with friends, and it was so special. They’re amazing friends. I’m so lucky to have such an amazing group of friends here now.
So, Merry Christmas everyone… I hope whatever you did, it was awesome!
