Winter Solstice is here. And Christmas is upon us. It's less than a week away. Four days, to be exact.
This is usually such a joyous time of year. This is the time of year I enjoy spending with my family. Unfortunately, it just wasn't in the cards for me this year. Too many things are going on with each of the different families, and it's too difficult to get us all together in one place this year.
It's looking to be a pale blue Christmas. There have been worse years, to be sure. I just really miss my family. And it seems like this is the time of year when it hits the hardest. It really is a bummer having thousands of miles separating us all.
This year, I shall celebrate... as much as I am able. Even though I can't be with my family, they all have their health and for this I am grateful.
My blood isn't here. But I still have unofficial family here. And my lovely cats. They will enjoy the new catnip and toys, I'm sure. This Christmas will be a good one. It has to be.
Happy Solstice, to all.
