“Shh,” I think to myself, walk softly as not to disturb that beautiful pre-dawn quiet.
I sit nestled on the couch with only the hum of the heater coming through the heat ducts, The heavy blanket and wool socks keep me warm as I jettison the haze from a long night’s sleep.
There are flashing multicolored lights dancing in the reflection of the window. Outside a blanket of snow covers the Kentucky countryside.
It is Christmas.
In a few days we will be with our family more than a thousand miles. I will see parents who provided me the means to be who I am, a brother with whom I shared a bunk bed for more than a decade, and another brother whose beneficence few cardiologists know. (Sadly, my sister and her family cannot make the trip; that’s real life. We will miss them greatly.)
Thanks to all who have supported me this year.
Thanks for reading.
I wish you all a great Holiday season and a Merry Christmas.
