Amy and the Routine Monochromatic Christmas

I'm having a really tough time this year getting into the whole Christmas thing. The house is still cluttered with packing boxes that we meant to have emptied, broken down, and recycled six weeks ago. I wasn't able to buy many special Christmas-y foods or extra ingredients for cookie making. My daughter and I went to a Christmas Eve candlelight service on our own because Adam is working tonight.

I think of my friend Rhys and realize I could be in a place much more challenging than this. But I still don't feel much like celebrating.

I'm tired. I'm weary. I'm hoping that all of you are having a happier Christmas Eve than I.

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadows put to flight.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.
