December 28th, 1978
Christmas at home; huge impressions. Reunion with my family with great enthusiasms– anxiety at low ebb. Mom produces a Christmas-at-home of great warmth for me and Sadie. A beautiful tree; Christmas day dinner with Don’s family. Holiday punch and genuine good cheer. Spirits are warm and relaxed. My visit is rich and deep. Out last night with Ross– driving through the empty streets of Springfield, remembering so much. Security flooding through my memory.
