It's true - this is my first year of xmas on BYC

! So, I'm super hyped, and wanted to do something special for you all! A xmas BYC thread! I have decided that I may as well start up a tradition, that I post a thread like this each xmas holiday :). This thread should be all about spreading the love and the beauty of the Christmas spirit! I think we can all agree...this year has been...different. Many things happened this year - some good, the majority, not so good. Like covid, that was tough - and still is! Many people are suffering or are effected in some shape or form from the virus. I hope you all are safe and well:hugs! Merry Christmas everyone! :wee

Hi Laura,

I guess I'll start...

I actually had a very good year, Covid-19 aside.

I finally started to come back from being lost after the sudden death of my father. He died three years ago this Saturday. I became nearly non-functional. This January, I finally started to pull out of the nose dive I was in.

I've accomplished a great deal this year despite many hurdles in my path and I'm grateful to have done them. My dad's house is under contract to be sold and the buyers are helping me finish the work needed on the house. It's a very bizarre circumstance to be in as a former house flipper. They are great people and I am getting much needed closure letting go of dad's house and my childhood home. A new couple is going to raise their family there and that is a beautiful thing!

This summer, I was able to find and flip a much more appropriate house for my mother to live in. And my disabled sister will be moving up from Texas to live with her too. She will also benefit from that work.

I've been fortunate enough to work for an essential business and didn't lose my income and have remained healthy throughout the year.

I reconnected with a sister I haven't spoken to since the flood of 2011.

My house is still under construction but I look forward to being able to decorate for the holidays next year! It will be the first time since the flood as I've moved from flip to flip for 5 years and haven't been able to finish my own home for other reasons. But I'll get it done next year and can't wait to live like normal people!!

I miss having a tree and just looking at it in the evenings with only the lights on the tree to illuminate the room.

Happy Holidays to everyone here on BYC! :hugs :love

Happy holidays to all and Merry Christmas! I really like the new heart reaction emoji! Not sure I understand the "info" one but I guess I'll catch on! Just so grateful to have survived 2020 so far! It's almost over, hooray, we are in the home stretch, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, woot woot! So grateful for all my BYC friends! ❤

like many here, Covid colored my year---Daughter's wedding plans cancelled/then altered, but a safe, small ceremony in our decorated barn was just lovely. New grandson arrived in Nov. without his Nana at the hospital--it was hard having to wait 3 days to hold him! granddaughter(12) is suffering through online school, and misses normalcy. New baby brother is a much needed diversion and blessing.
Hubby and I are doing ok healthwise--we have all been extremely careful, and treasure that our family unit of now 7 can eat dinner together every night at each other's houses on our farm. Our circle is tiny, but better than some have it!
Wishing blessings for everyone here, and hope for a better New Year!
