The tree is lit, the presents are wrapped and in their places under the tree, and Mikey is sound asleep and dreaming sweet Christmas dreams. My sister is holed up in the basement after swapping massages with me, and the rest of us are shortly bound for sleep. The morning will come with a promise of waffles and eggs; Mom went all out and bought an Entenmann's coffee cake to top it all off. Tomorrow evening, there will be roast beast. This year, we aren't making the drive up to New Jersey to spend the day with my mother's family; we're just staying here, the five of us, and having a quiet Christmas together.

I love Christmas for the joy in the spirit of giving and doing for others. I love the lights and the music. I love the joy that lights up the faces of my loved ones as they open their gifts. Mikey is full of all the childlike wonder of Christmas, and it is marvelously contagious.

I am so fortunate to have him in my life, along with good friends who have stuck by me through thick and thin. This year has brought a lot of challenges and changes, good and bad, and I've swung from extremes of stress and misery to joy and elation and back again. I am so thankful for the people in my life who have ridden the mental and emotional roller coaster with me and borne me up with their love and support.

Merry Christmas to you and yours. May all your dreams come true.
