The “other” BIG NEWS for the holiday break is that I got to spend a lot of time with my boys.
Now that they are teenagers, they prefer the company of their friends to the company of their mother. So it was nice to catch up with them while driving them to and from their activities.
I felt like a taxi cab. No sooner had I dropped one son off then the other needed to be picked up and dropped off somewhere else.
But they were (mostly) sweet to me. They gave me hugs and kisses and were generally good teenagers.
I still recall them arriving at my house on Christmas Day after spending Christmas Eve with their father. They were wearing matching jackets that he had bought them and they were obviously so pleased with their gifts.
We had a blast opening presents with the family, especially since my sister from Reno was visiting. That made it extra special.
You could say that I had a very blessed holiday, but that would be an understatement.
I can’t shake this warm and fuzzy feeling and my only regret is that I can’t live the holiday over again and savor every moment a second time.
