Bob and Terry were our friends from Buffalo. They gave us the artwork that hangs today over the Christmas tree. It’s called “Christmas in California.”
In Hamden it hung prominently above the fireplace. Here in SoCal it’s in the loft, our family meeting space.
It represented a goal… or maybe a fantasy. This year it’s come true. We spend our first Christmas in California tomorrow.
I miss wearing my red hat and tracking Santa on TV. I miss working so others could have this holiday at home with their families. I don’t miss winter.
Christmas in California is just as the picture shows.
We’ll be spending this evening with our cousins, then living the tradition of a movie and Chinese food tomorrow.
Have a great holiday. I hope you get everything you want.
