Having a very peaceful time

Christmas flowers

This Christmas is turning out a major source of rest and peace for us. I love it when shops are closed on Boxing Day, as it used to be. This closure emphasizes the restful period we have.

Putting up Christmas lights makes the house look warm and cosy. That’s what I love most about Christmas, which I now see as a festival to break up the long boring winter.

All the people wishing me Happy Christmas mean well and I thank them very much.

I actually managed to get my daughter to like Christmas Pudding this year. Bought only a small, one portion one and with double cream it tasted good.

Again this year, I went for a fruity theme. More fruit than cake and sweets.

I would love to share this wonderful time- at least remotely with my other children and grandchildren but can’t force them to contact me. There is plenty of opportunity to use Teams or other applications but they just don’t seem to want to need me at Christmas.

I do not want to buy their love with gifts. I think gifts should be an expression of feeling good about each other and not a bribe. So, I have not bought any gifts for my kids and grand kids from whom I didn’t hear anything all year, with the exception of some abusive phone calls.

Whatever brings one of my children to do that, I do not know but I can’t help those who do not want to be helped.

I’ve always done my utmost to assist. Whatever makes children not need their parents any longer is beyond me. I thought it is part of the natural human nature to try and stay connected with relatives. Most of us can’t help thinking about their parents, their childhood, their youth and all the stages of life. So why try to cut it out of one’s memory.

No home-made cake for me this year. Trying to keep up the good weight..

Surely my grandchildren will be asking their parents where the grand mother or father is and I really do not know what my kids tell their children why I can’t see them. I have not come to the bottom of this yet, why all my kids do no longer want to be in contact with me. I certainly haven’t done anything dreadful to them.

Perhaps because my grandchildren are all still quite young as I started having children quite late in life, they can’t make their own enquiries yet. But once they get older, the Internet must be leaving some clues.
