Underlying Sadness

Christmas eve will always be sad for me because Bobby passed away that day in 2014. Now we got another blow on December 23rd. Sara, my oldest grandaughter, got the news that her husband has an ultra serious heart condition and could go at any time. He is 32 and they think it may be caused by a birth defect. He spent yesterday with his family but Sara and her three children and my daughter drove down from Tulsa to spend the day with us. Ellie and Adrienne and Ashley came also and the children had a ball. There were dinosaurs that walked and roared, Rapunzel costumes complete with jewelry, cars, trucks, power rangers and dolls and stuffed animals galore. Pandemonium and joy mixed with feelings of sadness. I always give clothes as well as toys because it is practical and I think everyone like theirs. My sweet Sara was so distracted that she left her purse behind and my daughter left her make up. Through some hi tech app on Adrienne's phone we were able to send Sara the money in her bill fold. I will be mailing her purse and Linda's make up on Thursday. I made out like a bandit with gift cards, A chrome book and a white leather jacket but giving brings the most joy. I am so fortunate to have a loving family, it means everything to me to be surrounded by my four grand daughters and the three great grand children. Merry Christmas and love to you all. Jeri

Thinking of you at this sad time.

My mother died at 11:45 the night before Mother's day, but as a special day that doesn't compare to Christmas. We went to visit the grandbrats yesterday and it was pleasant. Actually almost fun. Everybody was well behaved. Today is turkey dinner although company isn't coming due to a sore throat. Their choice, but good for Donna since her doc appointment when she would have gotten a flu shot was cancelled a few weeks ago. Enjoy!

We were invited out for Christmas dinner and our hostess got sick and cancelled. we were kind of relieved. After the chaos yesterday it felt good just to be lazy.

well that is bittersweet. I’m sorry to hear that about your granddaughters hubby, and of course the sting of Bobby will always be there.

I just not have been able to put up a tree since Bobby died. I think I will give my large pre lit tree to Ellie and split up the Christmas ornaments between Sara and Linda.
