Our first Christmas in Florida…Bittersweet, I think. While I’m happy to be in a warmer climate, it’s times like these that make it hard. No family; no old friends. Nowhere to really ‘go,’ except for the same places we go every other day.
Talked with the kids this morning. Meg has it tough, also, as she is quite alone in her little place in Kansas City. Thankfully she has friends, though she didn’t say she would be seeing any of them today. But she does like it there, and she’s had a few holidays on her own now. It’s just hard when you come from such a large family to suddenly have NO family around for special occasions.
Thankfully we have a lovely place and we have each other.
