Christmas at home
Where do you spend Christmas?
I’ve many memories of Christmas over the last fifteen years. Since I’ve become a parent. Some admittedly merge into others – whereas some memories are more special – our first Christmas for example, with a six week old baby boy, our good friends Jane and Rick welcomed us into their home, it was warm, cosy, and I nursed my baby, curled up on their sofa; I closed my eyes, and dozed post-lunch and they looked after the baby, Janie paraded around the sitting room, in front of a roaring fire, wearing a pair of new slippers, and a lovely warm woolly coat that Rick had picked out for her… happy times.
I feel so contented remembering those special moments, and the kindness and generousity of our friends. And look forward to spending Christmas with family this year.
It gives me shivers to think of those without somewhere to go this Christmas.
