Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: Bloopers Can Add to Family Christmas Stories
Posted Dec 23 2012 12:00am
No matter how well we plan, most of us have some
loose ends to tie up Christmas Eve day, just before going to church or
having the family gather at our home. The present that was ordered early
and then delayed remains in question. Will it arrive in time? The fruit
tray reserved at the grocery store . Will it be there when we arrive to
pick it up?
more worrisome for caregivers is how their aging loved ones will make it
through the family events. Will Dad be sleepy from his medications or
agitated from all from all of the excitement? Will Mom’s touchy stomach
allow her to eat her favorite foods or will you spend the evening
wondering if you need to make her a nutritional shake to drink while
everyone else eats? Will Aunty throw a tantrum over the
fact that no one made white chocolate fudge this year and, well,
Christmas isn’t Christmas without white chocolate fudge?
