It’s upon us. Christmas. All the pre-Christmas hoopla is pretty much over. Oh, we have one more round of guests coming for dinner today – but then it’s done. I am already looking forward to the peace that I hope to experience starting later tonight and all the way through Christmas Eve. Quiet. Christmas. Peace. I’m picturing hubby and I snuggled up with Jinx the cat, watching one of the old, black-n-white wonderful Christmas movies, in front of the fire. Sipping on a bit of eggnog possibly. Oblivious to the rest of the world for just a little while 🙂 Ahhh, yes….. and what’s great is – I think it really will happen! No more parties, no more big meals, no more work-related events. Just quiet Christmas peace.
Reality hits for me bright and early on Christmas morning, as I bundle up and head into the city for a 12 hour shift at work. Sigh. I’ve been a nurse for oh…. 28 years or so, and I always hate having to work on special holidays. But as we (nurses) all say, it’s a fact of life and honestly- somebody has to do it. So, just a couple of days early, I’m wishing everyone a really wonderful Christmas…. and some Quiet. Christmas. Peace. of your own.
