I have a confession…I’ve been surfing blogs looking for inspiration on something, anything to write about. Here’s what I’ve noticed—most of them are about what a wonderful Christmas everyone had. Was mine wonderful?? It sure was—all my kids and grandchildren were at my house Christmas Eve and we had a great time. BUT it was nothing like described on some of the blogs…shiny children’s faces watching the night sky in hopes of seeing Santa; the family gathered around the Christmas tree singing carols. No, mine resembled more of a P.T. Barnum creation rather than Charles Dickens. Here’s how it played out.
