1. I miss singing Christmas Carols. I can't sing anymore because of my low oxygen.
2. I miss fruitcake. I don't miss eating it. I miss buying it for my dad because he liked it so much.
3. I miss my Granny Brennan's crochet work. Every year she would make snowflakes or angels or some sort of Christmas handiwork. I especially miss the crochet stockings that she made for each of us. Some how mine was lost when I first got sick.
4. I miss making the rounds to see family and friends on Christmas Eve. This tradition started when I was a kid and I kept it up over the years. Now I don't even travel to see anyone on the holiday. It is just too hard.
Except for number 4 that is really a trivial list. I am fortunate that I will have a good Christmas.
