A Charlie Brown Christmas

Guess I was pretty tired. I slept until noon today. Still feel sleepy. Was a good day yesterday. Had fun. The Hunter made the turkey on the grill and also the stuffing. I had put together a green bean casserole and he said to put that on the grill too. Was even better than in the oven. More importantly, I have jello and cookies and cake left over. Guess what I'm having for dinner tonight?
I don't do resolutions but I have - after talking with my daughter - decided to not react to anything The Hunter does or says. He doesn't seem to understand the rudeness and he usually doesn't mean it nor does he dwell on it. It's more like he doesn't have a filter, you know? So that is my goal for this year.
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!
One last thing,...one year, I got a gift that made me cry. Every year since then, I seem to get a gift that makes me cry, but it is a good cry. Now it's gotten to the point where everyone waits to see who gets me the "cry gift". This year it was Nathan. He got me the Charlie Brown tree. I feel a real connection to that. But since I have been depressed for a couple months now, I kept crying about it every time I thought about it. It got to where we were all laughing so hard! Peace.

Glad you had a good Christmas! Wish I could have seen you cry...like is it a silent tear drop or a full out gush of tears. Either way I know what you mean by crying when you get one of those heartwarming gifts that brings tears to your eyes. That is very sweet. Happy New Year.

Turkey on the grill for Christmas sounds awesome.

A Charlie Brown Tree and a Cry sometimes fixes all, isn't it funny that there is always a cry gift for someone, you will remember this Christmas from now on.

Loved it my Friend

Glad you had a good Christmas. My "cry" present is always the same--a box of Whitman Samplers. It was the traditional gift from my father. Ever since he died, my son has given them to me.

I got a gift from my so once that made me cry. because he had actually listened to me. and to what I needed.

At the time I felt v ery blessed.
now that my soccerboy is 16 I continually think back to that moment.

Since teens can be real jackasses sometimes.

I have 4 kids, and their Dad (my husband, who I met when he was 14 and I was 13) died when they were 8, 10, 12 and 14. They're in thier 20's and 30's now. Every year they laugh about the year 'Dad gave Mom a vacuum for Christmas and it made her cry'. They find it hysterical. Thing is, that IS what I really, really wanted, a Hoover, and even though he knew everyone would laugh at him for doing it, he got me what he knew I really wanted. That was 29 years ago...
