Christmas has a way of making you feel better than your usual self. Have you noticed this? It makes me feel like a nicer person than I really am. If I wasn't sick you know I'd be out spreading the holiday cheer. I still need to pass along leisure suit lady's good deed. But I'm stuck inside, on the couch, spreading my germs.
All the Christmas activities make my children look at me with adoring eyes. As if I, personally, have created this whole elaborate celebration just for them. If a person is told something often enough, they tend to live up to it. Good or bad. I hope I can live up to the person they think I am. I'm determined to become the Sugar Plum Fairy and bring some magic into our home this season.
Right after I get off the couch.
P.S. Not only does the Nutcracker make me feel smart it makes me feel like prancing around the room as if I weighed but a few pounds. Now that's some real Christmas magic.
