It's about 0800, Saturday Christmas Eve... I have no idea when this posts. I'm still blogger illiterate. But, I think it will be today. I hope....
Anyway. It's about 0800. I got up about 3 hours ago, wrapping gifts I'd yet to wrap and placing them under my Charlie Brown Christmas tree.....it isn't really, but it nearly looks like one. For those of you unfamiliar, look it up (HERE(
I like my tree, even if others don't.
Yesterday my uncle and cousin came to visit. They will be coming again today. These two are sort of alone for Christmas as that aunt who died last year about this time was my cousin's mother and my uncle's ex. (I got her in the divorce...she moved to just a mile or so down the road from me while he kept the old homestead in another state.) So even though my cousin and I didn't get along for years, I won't turn anyone out of my home on Christmas
....well, I guess I still have some issues with two people who just would need to find another inn. I would let them use my phone to do so, does that count?
Yesterday started out a bit rough, and that's ok. It was uncomfortable, I bet, for my cousin. And, if someone comes into my house, I expect them to respect me and my home...he did in every way. So, as things worked through the day and conversations developed, stuff improved.
It's difficult to forgive someone. Christmas is a wonderful time to do it. If you have anyone in your life that has angered you, hurt you or others.... if you can find a way, forgive. Harder done than said, I know, but worth it. I will keep tring with my unforgiven one.
