Christmas 2013

Finished writing a letter to my father and grandmother, whom I’ve had very little interaction with for over 10 years. I put together a photo album for them both. It’s a long story. I’m ready for healing to begin and for moving past the past.

It had been a rough day for me. Symptoms of Lyme disease were strong today for me and my son. I decided last minute, as the house was dark and quiet, to decorate the tree and mantel for Christmas.

This could very well be the last Christmas we celebrate in this house, a house that has kept us safe and warm for 12 years. I was overcome by emotion as I put the tree up, unfurling its branches, covering its barrenness with glittering memories of red and green. So many emotions, I prefer to leave them unsaid, they are more sacred in my heart.
