In just the blink of an eye, Christmas will be here!!! I still am not quite ready, but in my mind, that's okay. I am sure that things will fall into place as they should. I haven't been stamping much this week as I really have been focusing on the things that need to happen, like clearing a path for Santa!!! All the gifts have been purchased. I have to find one more gift that I had stowed away (ever hide something to find that it is forever lost??) and all the presents will be wrapped.
But does this really matter in the bigger scheme of things? I don't think so. What is more important to me is having my small family around me, good health for my parents and a good and happy life for my son.
This week we got a terrible scare. My Father was in an accident on the 401, which is essentially Canada's Trans Canada Highway. He hit some black ice and lost control of the Truck, hitting a Guardrail, spinning back across the road to hit the cement median divider head on. I think that he hit a couple of more times as the back of the Truck was smashed up as well.
His Truck as you can see, was damaged fairly badly. We are not sure if it will be written off, but there is a good possibility. Fortunately, there was a lot of Truck between that cement barrier and my father. Apparently when the airbag went off, it gave him quite a start, but other than that, he came out of the accident unscathed. I am thankful for that. I am thankful that there was no other cars involved. I am glad that the Transport driver that was coming behind him was able to slow down. I am appreciative of the kind men who stopped to ensure that he was all right before they continued on their journey.
So in reflection, if there is a light layer of dust on the bookshelves or a ketchup fingerprint on the fridge............does it REALLY matter????? What matters to me is that I will enjoy another safe Christmas with my Family, my Father safe and sound.
