It was a very difficult year for us. Money was tighter than tight. I was unable to do my Christmas shopping until the Tuesday before Christmas.
of my children came down with strep throat the weekend before Christmas. My
husband took them to the ER. They got shots and felt better the next day.
wasn't feeling well and hadn't for weeks; so, I stayed home from church with my
youngest child. The next day was Monday. I woke up so sick, I thought I had
strep as well. I slept the entire day. When my husband came home, he took me to
the ER. I was so sick, I didn't realize what was happening until I woke up and
found that I had been admitted to the hospital ! I told them I had to get out
because I had Christmas shopping to do. They didn't buy it. I had pneumonia. So,
my husband got to do his first Christmas shopping with a carefully written list.
The children were devastated and worried about me. The children weren't able to visit because of the strep they'd had. It
was a sad Christmas week for them. I was too sick to be sad. Finally, late
Christmas Eve, the doctor sent me home with strict instructions to rest rest
rest. My husband brought me home as a surprise to the children. They thought he
was just visiting me. It was a joyous Christmas Eve after all.
day, we spent a slow relaxed day, just hubby, the kids and I. No turkey. No fancy meal. By Friday, I felt
better and my husband invited friends over to share our belated Christmas
It was probably the most blessed Christmas we ever had.
was definitely memorable!
I hope you have the most wonderful of Christmas seasons.
Happy at Home
