today I’ve been vacillating between joy and sadness

joy at spending time this morning online with the kids in Ottawa as we opened our gifts;-)… they were in the sleigh, lol…

sadness that I am here alone, even if at my own choice…

joy, at spending time with my grandson and his girlfriend in the garage around the fire pit exchanging presents…

sadness that my beloved isn’t here…

joy, that my dinner was delicious… my favourite roast chicken, homemade stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy and turnip…

it looked a little beige, but tasted delicious…

sadness that I wasn’t able to see the rest of my Winnipeg family…

and back to joy as I remember I am home safe and healthy on this Christmas Day…

yup, up and down…
