I’m not at my momma’s house in Florida eating delicious homemade food and walking the beach with my daddy. We are not spending the night in Orlando to see Harry Potter world decorated for Christmas and waiting for my sisters and Santa. Instead we are laying around sick and tired and fighting a brigade of virus germs, Oohrah!
But I must say this forced stop is not unpleasant. My babies and I are together, safe and warm and sleeping at will. There is no work or school to stress over missing. Couch blankets, Christmas lights, Netflix and tea are making me cozy and bright.
I’m wearing my Muggle socks since I can’t magically fix this and I let them open their Christmas box from our best friends in La Feuillade, France, Evelyn, Clo and Clara to cheer them up.
‘Tis the season for germs and cheer and we have both, so everything will be alright. Merry Almost Christmas my friends. May you find the blessings in the chaos.
