Today’s event will be a bit awkward. We have not made a public announcement to our families about Adam and I getting a divorce. For the children’s benefit, we are conducting ourselves like usual. We are heading to my brother’s home for Christmas Eve and tomorrow we will go to Adam’s brother’s home. The children will most definitely enjoy the holidays.
In previous years and, this year won’t be any different, I’ll be eating Santa’s cookies and drinking a sip of the Soy milk they leave for him alone. But this year, I’m giving Santa a little extra as you suggested, Grace. There’s no reason Santa Claus can’t enjoy a bit of spirits along with the fun of delivering Christmas wishes.
I wonder if Adam will give me any surprise stocking stuffers or a gift. I bought him several gifts from the boys and a gift certificate to Starbucks, his favorite coffee spot before work. The boys delight in the joy of giving gifts too.
‘Twas the night before Christmas
And all through Eve’s home
An internal stirring was felt to the bone
But both of Eve’s children were handled with care
As they dreamed of St Nick who soon would be there
David and Jonathan were snug in their beds,
While visions of transformers played in their heads
As Eve sits down to enjoy some Merlot
The home she once knew is no longer so
Adam and Eve have finally decided
The hearts that were one have sadly divided
But Eve will not let this Christmas be doomed
She believes in hope and new life will soon bloom
So she looks at the scene and thinks of the birth
The story of Jesus who came to this earth
His life was a gift from God up above
And Eve sheds a tear as she feels his great love
This vision before her is filled with much grace
No words are required but only one’s faith
The moment is perfect and all will be well
For God is here with us, in our hearts he dwells
Merry Christmas dear Eve my wish is for you
To experience great peace in all you must do
Blessings and peace.
