Today we made the best of our first Christmas without Jason. This morning was very rough on me when I was alone in a quiet house…the kids still sleeping. Usually Jason and I would have enjoyed the lazy morning together before working together to get brunch made. Today it was just me and my memories and my tears.
Once the kids got up and Jeremy and Cheryl came over for brunch I had worked through some of my tears and sadness. We enjoyed brunch together…opened gifts…played some games. Traditionally, this is how we usually spend Christmas. We usually just relax…do whatever we feel like doing…just enjoy time together as a family.
This year we decided to go down to Red Wing to Jason’s parent’s house in the afternoon and spend some time with them. Normally, they would have everyone to their house on New Year’s Day to celebrate Christmas, but because of Covid those plans are cancelled this year. It felt really good to see them today. I always feel closer to Jason when I’m around his family that’s missing him too.
Merry Christmas to you and your families.
