We had a great Christmas. One of the best in years. I think it is just because I took time to really think about what it means. For me that is Family, friends and being with the ones you love (oh and the sick amount of food ... that my guts are now paying for). It really has nothing do to with religion or a belief beyond loving the one's you are with and taking time to appreciate them more than normal.
We had an awesome Christmas day walk with the dogs and family. +12 Celcius and no snow made it possible for Jane to come along for the long walk in the Coulees (she was carried like a Queen in her bag for most of it) As sad as it is, none of us really expected to be spending Christmas with Jane, so it was even more special that she is still with us ... fighting the fight. She was soooo spoiled and so loved this Christmas.
I took a bunch of photos and I'll post them soon. It was a very special day.
