I love Christmas Eve, for me it has always been the most magical day of the year. That sense of expectation, the birth of Jesus and the arrival of Father Christmas with lots of surprises. That childhood sense of wonder and awe changes as we grow older and we feel different emotions for different reasons. I’m doing my best this year to keep a sense of the magical, to give my parents a happy time. Things have changed so much in the past year. At the moment I’m sitting here hating that Mom feels I’m trying to hurt her or harm her simply by changing her clothes. I’m missing my sister so much today too; I cannot help but think that things would be easier if she were here but as she isn’t I have to just get on with things and hope that she is helping me from her heavenly abode.
However, there has been some happy times in the past week and I thought I’d share them with you before I wish you a Merry Christmas.
Girlie catch up Christmas lunch with my friend.
I dropped some items off for charity and had the Church to myself, so beautiful.
I loved the colour of these Roses and so bought them for Mam.
I definitely made the Hall and Porch sparkle this year.
A Christmas Cyclamen hanging basket and a very old Christmas wreath I hang outside every year.
I gave in a joined the phenomenon that is Snapchat. I haven’t got the hang of it yet but I have to say it has made me giggle at times I really haven’t felt like giggling. That has to be a good thing!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for being so supportive of me and my blog. I hope you all have a truly magical, peaceful, blessed not forgetting sparkling Christmas.
O Holy Night. Sparkling Star bless our world tonight.
