This time of the year was always my favorite cause it always meant family time. Now it is family time with a bit of sadness. It has been 23 years today that we buried my daddy. With the Newton school shooting just a few weeks ago my heart is heavy. The only thing I can do is pray for all involved and know that with one day at a time they will make it through. Some days will be harder than others but I believe if u hold on to every one else in your life they will never let you fall.
I just love the smell of Christmas. Besides enjoying the holidays with family and friends, the smell of pine is intoxicating. Whether you have a flocked tree or not you want that smell to last a lifetime.
For others the months of November and December can be the hardest months the whole year to survive. If you, like myself have lost a love one during the holidays. I can say from experience that the first year is the hardest. If I didn’t have my mom, brother and two sisters, I don’t think I would have made it through.
Some people are not as fortunate to have people in their lives that care about their well being. I am one of the lucky ones.
