for decades, i've wanted that "norman rockwell" holiday....lots of family, great food, happy people, memory-making, laughter, sharing across the generations. i don't have that with my family, or my hubby's family, and it's not happening with the next generation, either, as they are too far away. the longing for what "could be" is a huge joy-stealer. so i'm just going to embrace my not-normal-ness, and start celebrating in ways that reflect who i am.
i'm excited about making new traditions that will bring love, laughter, and good memories! we'll see what we come up with.
wishing you all a holiday that brings you joy, however you choose to celebrate. emoticon

    I know the feeling. I try and make everything and event, and all i do is get frustrated that things are not "the way they are suppose to be" It took me a long time and I still have trouble, but just enjoy the moment, wherever you are and whoever your with. Have a Happy Holiday! emoticon emoticon
