There is not one single outward sign or indication that it's Christmas time here in 'the tank"! I made an origami tree altho' the Charlie Brown Tree looked more like a Christmas tree than my origami. But the Grinch Guards took it away. :(
I live in a world that isn't remotely normal anymore. But I know it won't always be like this. I do have a sense that i will survive. Inwardly, I feel the Spirit of Christmas tonite. I think some of the other tribe members in here do too.
Today I received greeting cards from my children and my wife. Reading their notes lifted my spirits and put a smile on my face. Funny how a few words scribbled on the front (and back!) of a card can ignite the visceral feeling of LOVE. I'm alone in here...yet I'm not because I know people "out there" care about me. Wonder what Christmas Day will bring???
