Waiting

I spent a lot of time waiting this Christmas. Waiting in line at various stores. Waiting at Christmas brunch for the excruciatingly slow restaurant service. Waiting to get my music on my new Ipod like clone. Dontcha hate it when your new toy does not work out of the box. But I did achieve one goal. I did not want to be sad and depressed this year. Even though it is the third bad Christmas in a row, with this being the worst. We had so many friends and family members who have been extra kind this year. I managed to hold W in my heart at our Christmas Eve service without my heart breaking again.
A wonderful friend who is a publisher gave me some copies of W's poetry book that I can give to friends and family.

I am relieved the holiday is over. The waiting has finished.
