Adjusting - Private

Millie and I bought a tree, and started some shopping, but Isabel's cold cut it short. I think it's hard for Millie to understand that I'm not the most holiday-inclined guy, but I'm trying to make an effort.

At least I was until we had the discussion about the nativity set. I lost my temper again - not at her, but...I don't know at what. It's hard. It's one of the things I never took into consideration, since the plan was not to get married or to have a kid. There's no way to win this fight - I don't want to take her faith, but it's not something I can do, not anymore, not ever.

I remember a time when the Church was comforting to me, but that was long ago, and I know better now. The hands that took the ability to believe left a lasting mark.

Poignant moment. Maybe if Millie knew what we knew, she would have averted the loss of temper. Maybe Mike needs to tell her more of what we know. Last sentence was a gem.
