I noticed at the beach that some kids have it figured out!
Yes, I decided I needed to escape from the reality of the day to day drama. . . so I slipped away to SoCal, no husband, no kids, no pets. Now I am being wined and dined, singing Christmas carols to the neighbors, lighting luminarias on a quiet street, jacuzzi-ing in the light of the full moon, entertained by my favorite niece, walking along the beach (65 F). . . I could go on and on. But this is just the therapy I need. Above all I am enjoying watching the joy of a child waiting for Santa!
So whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Chawmos, Goru, Lohri, Karachun, Kwanzaa, Modranicht, Sanghamitta, Soyal, or Juletid, may you find the love, joy and peace that can bring you happiness and renewal for another year. 2011
