Merry Christmas

Tweet This

Nay Nay was a birthday present over 15 years ago.
She's been a true gift to all of us.

We are not exactly having the holiday season I envisioned. Last night, on our way in the car, to celebrate Christmas Eve with family, nausea was the victor.

"I don't feel good," says Vinny, about a minute before we arrived at my cousins' house.

The next thing out of his mouth was vomit.

Good thing we brought the bucket along for the celebration.

No kid should have to throw up on Christmas. It's just wrong, but that's our sad reality right now.

Of course, the vomit, once again arrived in an untimely manner, one hour before his next antibiotic dose. My hair was standing on end wondering if the next dose would stay down, but fortunately the rest of the evening was upchuck free.

Last night almost felt normal. Words don't express how awesome it was to gather with loved ones and celebrate Christmas.

Christmas morning is going well, so far. Opening presents is always fun, and uplifting. But who knows what unwelcome surprises the day will bring?

A friend recently sent me a message that has been serving as a grounding reminder for me, "This has been tough and you are getting through it---you are a really solid family."

Seems like a simple thing to say, right? But her words are getting me through it, because in times like these, times we need it most, it's easy to forget inner strength. Especially during our many moments of setback.

We can get through this. And we will. Though none of us will ever be the same, again.

Besides being our family being back together, the best Christmas present for me this year has been all the support we've received.

When I think of EVERYONE who has helped us, either through action, prayer or kind words, it makes me feel tender hearted and loved, literally bringing tears to my eyes. Thank you!

"Honey, are you okay?" asks Hubby, seeing my tears, again.

"Yeah, I'm okay," I say. "But it's been a hard month."

"Yeah, it's been goofy," he says, kissing the back of my neck.

May everyone have a blessed Merry Christmas. Here's a little Christmas song, I hope you enjoy, I know I will.
