Merry Christmas Perfect Family Letter
I was in such a hurry when I ordered the yearly Christmas cards, I didn’t realize until I got them back that I had not even put our names on them or wrote any type of greeting. So you are being gifted with a Christmas letter from Frosty and Noel. On the Card i had designed, I realized that I had made the bigger pic of us ,and the smaller pic of Baby Jesus and I felt awful. IT should have been the other way around. Shows just how busy we become when trying to get everything on our list checked off. My mind had been on so many things that day that I simply didn’t pay enough attention to what I was doing. You are probably not like me. But that is how I roll. I act and then think. Well, now for the perfect Christmas letter saying we have a perfect little family. We have perfect gorgeous kids and grandkids who excel at everything they try. Our kids are all rich and in perfect health. They call us every day to check on us and allow us to just go on and on about our lives and then bring us amazing dinners, (since we can’t get close to them, they just throw the dinner in our car and run), but we are usually wanting to get home so Frosty can give me my nightly foot massage as I drink the hot cocoa he has so lovingly prepared for me with the box of chocolates he brings home once a week for my enjoyment.
Could life get any better? Now for the real story!
The reality of 2020. We began like most of you last December 31st, looking forward to a year of knowing that this year would be our best yet. We had friends over for a NYE gathering (I won’t call it party because we are old and we gather, we don’t party). Our somewhat, older than we are friends, decided that they had better start home by 9 p.m. if they wanted to get home before falling asleep. We decided that very night, that we were not going to be like the rest of the oldies. We would make this the year that we would find younger, more hip friends who could at least stay awake until 10. We were not going to let old age hinder our lives. I will be back after I finish watching The Wheel and finish taking all my meds before I fall asleep on the couch.
Ok, let’s finish!Yes, we do have great kids and so far, no one is in jail, everyone is employed (although some of the jobs, we don’t ask about, we don’t think we really want to know what they do) and 2 1/2 of them are married. So we feel pretty blessed. All of the grandkids still speak to us and we have finally been taken off about 25 robo call lists. Our cabinets have 25 rolls of toilet paper and a pantry full of flour and paper towels. Our goal this week before Christmas is to splurge on Hand sanitizer and possibly a new face mask for each other as gifts. So now you know the rest of the story. We truly are so grateful for your friendship and we hope that unlike me when I designed the cards, Jesus will be the “big picture” in your lives! Merry Christmas from our hearts to yours!
