The time is nearing the holidays . Every day it looks more like Christmas inside my family’s home. With two levels of living space, it takes awhile to complete the look.
I go downstairs to the family room and a glowing tree catches my eyes immediately . Standing with smiles beside the tree is Mr. And Mrs. Santa Claus .
Decorating the fireplace mantle is silver tinsel with flickering lights all in a row. On the main floor, a Christmas tree ornates, the window. A tiny tree decorated with candy cane lights sits upon the television .
When I lookout my bedroom window in the still of the night, I smile at the decorative lights softly shining through the glistening snow. If I was not feeling well for this day, thinking about how my grandchildren see the decorations through their eyes, puts a smile on my face.
It is so different being a grandma and putting mom as second. I don’t have to worry and stress throughout the holidays like I used to. Now, I just ask a few questions and make my purchases and in no time at all, I have made my edibles for the table .
It is almost Thanksgiving so I need to slip away and head for the kitchen. One of the foods I am making is my grandmother’s recipe for her dressing. I want to do whatever I can ahead of time in case Thanksgiving would happen to bring along with the good food, my nasty tremors.
Are you decorating for the holidays yet? Are you beginning the preparation for Thanksgiving Day?
