Sometimes the holidays are one long stressful reminder of all the childhood wounds and irritations and conflicts you’ve ever tried to work through in therapy.
And sometimes they are just delightful days of rest and connection and cookies and rest.
Mostly, it’s both. But for us this year, it was weighted towards delight.
Cousins visited us at our new house (which comes with a golf cart!). We tackled the hardest puzzle ever. We dressed up and dressed down and played pool and celebrated the youngest cousin (soon to turn two), and the oldest cousin, Penny, who turned 18.
And I am very grateful.
