Grandma was sick, dad was sick, first Christmas without Heather.
But, family, smiles and yummy food. Summary of Christmas? Yes.
Change is hard, sometimes. It was difficult having a Christmas where family doesn't stay late after some leave. It was difficult having my grandma and grandpa leave early so my grandma could nap. It was difficult that my father had to sit in another room for the most of the time because he had a fever. It was difficult spending my first Christmas without my older sister.
Change is hard.
But, that's just life. Even though it was different, it was still good. I'm very grateful for the family I have. Grateful every day.
