I had expectations for the day. Today we would finally start the decking of the halls. When it became clear that she had other plans, my disappointment was undeniable. If not today, then when? I hate not being able to do things myself. I hate having to depend on others. Tomorrow there is an office gift exchange and I haven't even bought the gift to exchange. I pity the person whose name I drew.
At least there is online shopping. I would be a cooked goose, a Mr. Scrooge, a Burgermeister Meisterburger without online shopping.
I just might make it through this Christmas season with the right heart.
It helps that there is one more sign of Christmas in our house.
