christmas: family stone style

December 26, 2007

Have you ever had a Christmas that was just complicated and hard? I come from a family of amazing, dynamic people. Most people have only one of these types per family, we have several. When any one of my 3 sisters enters a room she owns it immediately, it has been this way as long as I can remember.

And the sibling love, it’s the I’ll-scratch-your-eyes-out if you ever hurt her sort of ferocious kind. It’s a ball of strong personalities, independence, creativity and a little madness all rolled into one. All of this energy makes my family special and exhausting at the same time, holidays seem to heighten each person’s dysfunctional role. (mine included)

I found myself saddened this year, wishing some things were different, wishing I were different…I’m forever trying to sort it out in my head. So for all that are feeling torn and a little bit relieved that tomorrow is not Christmas, I am eating chocolate in your honor tonight.

I hope your Christmas was simple and full of peace…
