the sun is going to shine on our backdoor someday
As usual, I hosted my family's Christmas dinner, not because I'm a good cook or anything, but because I'm the eldest sibling to this orphan bunch. Good thing my siblings and Pete are easily impressed! Nothing concerning my family is ever ideal, but I do my best to appreciate the time we spend together. We ate, exchanged gifts,threw the football around, and hung out outside around the fire. It was enjoyable.
I need to do more this year to help those less fortunate. Long Beach has more homeless people than ever it seems, many of them women. For me, all the suffering in the world is amplified around Christmas time. I feel heartbroken and grateful as the year comes to an end.
Happy New Year. May it be filled with good times, love, and empathy.
