Merry Christmas!

Merry ChristmasChristmas time is always a very happy time for me. I love spending time with my family and extended family. On boxing day we are all gathering at my home to spend the day together. It’s really nice to be able to do that!

We’ll exchange gifts, catch up, hug and laugh. Life is good!

Here are some great communication tips for big gatherings (applies to grown ups too):

  • Keep your face in view
  • Speak clearly
  • Avoid background noise (not going to happen, but nice to keep in mind)
  • When all else fails – use Sign Language

Hope you and yours have a wonderful family Christmas…..if you know of a neighbor that is alone, invite them over! (I’ve done that before and it is such a treat to be able to make someone feel loved and welcome PLUS, it’s hilarious to watch them fall asleep on the couch after a turkey dinner).
