Be Tough, Be Brave, This Holiday! — 4 Comments

  1. Oh girl – I totally relate to this. Been thinking of you and your family and praying that you were having a good weekend. I put the tree up yesterday on my Dad’s birthday and it helped ease the ache by having the girls and Ken around decorating and adding beauty to our home.

    • Decorating hurts so much sometimes–but once it’s done, the house looks so lovely and every just seems to perk up and get in the “Christmas spirit” so much faster! 🙂 I think we’re planning to decorate and pick out our tree this weekend.

  2. Right there with you … this year I have decided that I am going to do something “holiday” related every day with my 4 year old starting on Dec 1st … all the days are planned out on the calendar (some days are as easy as coloring a Christmas picture, others include baking cookies, decorationg the house, going on the Polar Express, watching seasonal movies, and reading holiday books … just some examples) … I haven’t really been into the spirit the last 2 years, but I am going to make myself this year (and I hope by scheduling things that will help).

    • I go back and forth. I try really hard to be happy, but I just feel down. But I see that my kids don’t. This is all they know. It’s not their fault I compare everything to better holidays back in the “good ole days” that they don’t even remember. This year I’m actually feel much more in the spirit than usual and I’m trying to roll with it. 🙂
