There was no joy in the house that particular Christmas in the late 1970’s. My mother’s declining mental health and terminal cancer diagnosis loomed large.
When I came home to visit, the tension was palpable. I suggested that we watch The Muppet Show.
My siblings were teenagers, and not interested.
I convinced them.
Only 5 minutes into the show, there were smiles, there was laughter, there were traces of the joy we had lost to the complications of life.
I will always remember the moment.
I will always be a fan.
This is Day 2 of the 3 Day Quote Challenge. Thanks again to Rich and Judy for the nomination.
