Christmas Eve at my house.
Jim's favorite holiday drink was sparkling apple cider. I toasted him and played some Christmas music. My first Christmas without him. I sure do miss that man.
On Christmas day Paul and I were invited to Ginny and Mickey's for dinner. A fantastic meal with good friends.
On Friday before Christmas my grief support group had a luncheon. These women are so strong and have been such a blessing in my life. It truly is a safe, non-judgmental place to be.
And boy can they put on a spread.
One of the women made this ornament for each of us. The cardinal is Virginia's state bird and Jim was from Virginia. He loved those birds, even the females which aren't near as colorful as the males.
A cardinal's spiritual meaning is that of love. Cardinals are part of symbolism and whenever you see one, it signifies that a loved one is visiting you.
Had my left cataract removed on Wednesday so it is still trying to adjust to seeing the world differently. My next appointment is the end of January and hopefully by then I can get a new prescription and new glasses.
New Year's Eve will find me in my pajamas in my living room, maybe watching the ball drop in New York. I want to wish each of you a joy filled 2023 and many visits from cardinals.
