Something is Missing as Christmas Approaches

It is two days before Christmas .  The inside and outside of the house are looking festive. My shopping is complete. The items are ready to wrap except for three gifts that are donations I made in someone’s honor to a charity. The recipients will get an e-mail or letter notifying them of my gift.22

I am pleased with myself, and I am sure Christmas day with my family will be very good. There is just one snag. Yes, I have been sentimental and thankful this month, but I haven’t felt the anticipation or joy over Christmas. I have listened to Christmas songs and sung a few and even went to a Christmas party. But the feelings are just not there. Maybe all I need is to wake up Christmas Eve or day and zing they are there. If not well…I will be content.

A lot has gone well this year, and that is not something to regret.  I also look forward to a new year and starting fresh on a lot of things.  And of course continuing this blog and continuing work on my next book, of course, with some help.  So whether the anticipation or joy over Christmas comes or not at least one thing is for certain I am ready for 2015.
