“A Quiet Comforting Christmas”

Description from Kathryn R: Lately, I’ve been fighting back tears as I’ve witnessed the pain, suffering, and separation this horrific pandemic has caused the American people. And the rage I feel each day at those who at one time called it a “hoax” then enjoyed the miracle cure their privileged status demanded when they contracted it. Meanwhile, almost 1/3 million of our Fellow Americans were killed by COVID19. So far. My husband and I have been separated from our grown daughter and son-in-law since March, only seeing our son outside or distanced and masked twice. We mask up and sacrifice because it’s the right thing to do. We care about our fellow Americans not to spread covid. We want to be smart about not getting infected: No restaurant dining, big event gatherings, parties, etc. This Christmas it will probably be only my husband and I - a quiet, thankful, hopefully comforting Christmas.

    This is a very comforting, beautiful pick. My husband and I are in the same position as you are – stuck inside since March. Hopefully a vaccine will be here soon.
    Wish you a Merry Christmas.

    Hey all, for me its my dog Teddy and I. I have a best friend here at the Senior Living Center. We take Teddy for a walk almost every day. We’ve been wearing masks for months now. I’ll see my doc on the 17th and get my flu shot. My crazy DIL & son are having a Christmas Eve gathering but I’m not going. If it were just them and my grandson I would. But they’re inviting others including people who aren’t even family. But I am thankful for a son who has stayed healthy wearing a mask and stops by once a week to help me with things I can’t do myself. I sold my car about a year ago so I’m getting used to an almost solitary life. I watch a lot of TV lately with so many Christmas movies on right now. And after Christmas I’ll get back to reading a pile of books I acquired. I know ya’ll have similar stories and I have other friends my age who are ill and can’t get out but they do have husbands. But its a life we all never thought we’d ever have to get used to.

    Kathyrn, I imagine it was quiet in that stable so many years ago when hope was born. That alone is our comfort and joy. It’s a perfect time to pray for our families and our country. A beautiful pick- with comforting colors and a sweetness that is you, Kathryn! Bless you!

    A lovely gentle pick. I have groceries delivered and my kids help me do pickups at the grocery store and library. I tell one of my daughters I’m giving her virtual hugs. My heater bit the dust and my son helped get a new replacement. The old one lasted 26 years and I’d been nursing it along! What a year!
