I don't know about you guys but there was NO boxing on TV today at all. I even watched ESPN.
I took a much needed day off yesterday. We spent it with my in-laws and the baby and she had a wonderful first Christmas. We took a nice long walk in the park with the entire family (dogs included of course).
Family is so very important. No matter where I was in my life, on tour, in Los Angeles or even England, I always made it home for Christmas every year but one. After my father passed away in 1999 and my mother passed in 2005, the homes I knew as a child were gone. Subsequently I could no longer "go home" for Christmas.
Since then I've made my own family and although my mother and father never got see my amazing baby girl in person, I know that they are seeing her from afar.
I mentioned tonight that what I miss the most is the ability to pick up the phone and just talk to them. I don't think it's so much the physical connection that I miss but more the simple fact that I can't communicate voice to voice.
I feel that we are all parts of a greater whole, a larger existence and that, as individuals, we are intertwined in many ways. And I am grateful to share, in some small way, a little bit of my life with those around me. And thank you all for sharing yours.
Here's to an incredible Boxing Day!
And oh...we still have some great shows coming up. Deborah Gibson tomorrow night (almost completely SOLD OUT for that one). Marla of course on Dec. 30....
