I'd like to thank these fora for assisting in much of my journey of the past
six months plus our study group and my autistic students.

This was our best Christmas in recent memory in terms of
contentment/joy of my extended family and especially my kids.
My daughter and s-i-l always spoil me but that just was icing on the cake.
The last three days have been exactly what i remember from
my childhood. [is this premature senility? laughing ] Before christmas,
I frequently bemoaned my dislike of all the materialistic seasonal
practises but these really didn't influence our joy. God is always good
and my experience was beyond anything imagined.

The Christmas Mass was magical and I kept expecting someone to pinch me
as I was so intrigued and content. My deaf son was so patient and declined
all visuals I usually cart around for him. My parish isn't overly friendly but
the message at that mass was loud and clear.

GBU all here.

I hope I'm not too late to congratulate you on your serene holiday, Susan. I am happy you found those God moments in the midst of everything. I had a moment before the Christmas eve mass to myself where it also felt magical in the feelings I received while listening to the choir practice. (My daughter played trumpet, so we were there early.) It is almost like our Lord has our undivided attention and all is right with the world. I love it when that happens. It sounds like you do, too! My hope is that the memory of that carries with you during the rough times this year. God is present, we feel it, we know it, now we only need to remember it.
