I am surprised sometimes by how well my students handle being away from home for the holidays.
Some of them do get pass-outs from the facility to go home for a couple of days while others for various reasons spend Christmas at the addiction center. Many of them decorate the cottages they live in and on Christmas Day they usually have a community dinner.
Tomorrow when we have class if they want, I have soft meditative Christmas music that we will listen to. I am lucky, many years I have worked the holidays, but this year Rick and I will spend
a low key holiday together. He is recovering slowly, still unable to chew and tires easily. I keep telling him, it will be better soon but I don't think he believes me.
During this busy hectic time, take some moments to breathe and remember to treat others the way you would have them treat you. Wishing you peace.
