and so this is Christmas

Thursday, December 25, 2008

...and I'm blogging. Something is terribly wrong with this picture, I think. Maybe not. I'm sitting in my living room surrounded by the Captain's family, waiting for our dinner to finish cooking. Another hour.


Went to midnight Mass last night. It was absolutely beautiful. I went alone and I must admit it was a bit weird being there by myself with families and couples all around me. But I was fine, just felt a bit awkward. Spent a lot of time praying for and thinking about the families affected by the accident I wrote about earlier in the week. .

Spoke with my mom yesterday. J is doing ok. He asked to go to the funeral, so they took him. He was upset (obviously) and is still in near-constant contact with his friends. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers.
The Captain is summoning me. Ok, he's kinda raising his voice in annoyance that I'm online. And he's probably right. So, I'm signing off.
I hope you & yours have very Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah! And for all of you - I wish you joy, peace and love this season.
