She stared out the shop window.  She had planned Christmas Eve to be with her daughter’s family, so it would be just like her grandparents’ Christmases. They always came to her house after dinner and then opened their gifts, ate cookies and drank egg nog.

Well, this would be a variation on a theme. She would bring Chinese food. They would open the gifts and look at the Christmas card pictures from the cousins and listen to Christmas music from her daughter’s youth.

But those plans had been put in disarray when her daughter had told her they had to eat at 4:30 and leave by 6:00 to go to church with her in-laws. She would make it work. It would become a new tradition.


About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
