Merry Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve December 24, 2019

Way, way behind on Christmas this year. Just got the ornaments on the tree yesterday, and now we’re wrapping presents. Alas, I didn’t have a chance to race around drawing suspicious glares at area convenience stores for the annual Keendex. I apologize for that, but I doubt it’s changed much from last year’s list.

Here, as ever, is Anne Lamott’s Advent Adventure.

Then I called my Jesuit friend, Tom, who is a hopeless alcoholic of the worst sort, sober now for 22 years, someone who sometimes gets fat and wants to hang himself, so I trust him. I said, “Tell me a story about Advent. Tell me about people getting well.”

He thought for a while. Then he said, “OK.” …

Merry Christmas.
