    Current mood: touched

    Christmas spirit
    Update on my sister:
    I'm not too worried about her prospects now.

    Just before P died, he and my sister had just paid for a Christmas vacation package to Disney World. My sister was torn, whether or not to go but, in the end, she decided that P had worked too hard for the vacation for his little girls to just throw it away.

    They were gone for 5 or 6 days. When they got back, magic! There was a lighted Christmas tree, with presents under it, waiting in the living room. The half-finished projects around their little house - the torn-up ceiling where P had taken down a wall between the kitchen and living room, the light fixtures, the old kitchen cabinets - all were finished and replaced and painted thanks to friends and strangers and donations. The front steps, formerly a couple of cement blocks, were now actually wooden steps. The kitchen has a pantry! There's a ceiling fan/light fixture in the living room.

    'Twas awesome.
