I finally got all of my Christmas shopping done today. Steph is busy wrapping them and getting them under the tree. I went ahead and let her pick out some of the things she wanted. After all, my taste and hers are miles apart.
Tomorrow my sober son will be here and Christmas will be wonderful. Tough year or not I look forward to the future and don't dwell on the past. We will have a delicious meal of ham, baked beans, green bean casserole and plenty of other goodies. I did get a cheese ball along with a box of Sociables which my son always devours.
It will be a huge change from the past 17 Christmas days since so much has changed since March 3rd when I kicked my husband to the curb. But it will be ok. I do wish him and his family (which includes my precious granddaughters and my step daughters) well and I wish them all a Merry Christmas. I decided a long time ago to let it be.
I predict that 2012 will be a wonderful year for my family. I will have my grandson here and I couldn't be happier about that. Life is good and I plan on making it a good year. After all, only I can do that. Positive attitude and prayer will get me through anything.
Merry Christmas everyone. May you find the peace and serenity that makes you happy.
