Christmas Week 2015
December 21, 2015 12:08am CST
The tree my wife chose is fine for our space, a five foot blue spruce, sturdy limbs to hold more ornaments than needed. I wonder as I help hang ornaments why my eyes fill with tears. Have I become one of those "elderly people" who can't deal with the "happiest day of the year" as advertised? Is it because my only daughter is depressed and unhappy in her work and life and old dad can't fix it? Maybe. Being unable to take care is so difficult. It has always been my duty and now the solution is beyond my reach. So, I will work the next four days, meeting and greeting customers, sharing stories about birds and waiting for Christmas day, when she will be here and we will share a happy moment. I hope that your Christmas week will be a happy one,

I hope your Christmas week will be a happy one too as much as can be. I am trying to learn to take care of myself and to take care of things that need to be done. Then when there Is something I can do to help my loved ones I am free to go do so. I don't do so well at this and end up spending too much energy worrying. Anyway, when I write down what I Can do and make a plan to do it, I feel a little less anxious. Things like phone, have a nice visit when she gets there, etc.
