Yes, we all know the holidays are coming up. It is a time of year that is hectic and stressful. It is also happy and exciting. You have your traditions, and cooking and house full of people. This holidays season will be different. We used to go up north and see my Dad and since he is gone now I do not think we will be doing that. Yesterday, I went out to breakfast with my daughter’s friend and her mom and she asked me if I had any family in NY. I hesitated and to think for a minute and for the first time said, No.  Then I  mentioned my brother in law  in NJ which was a help.  It was weird not saying Oh, my Dad still lives there.  It will be strange not sending him a card.  It will be strange not getting a card with his  terrible handwriting on it .  We stopped going because it was to cold but I should of made just one more trip. I went last spring to say goodbye. Holiday time is hard.  I guess you have to take it one holiday at a time.  Either way I have to make nice and happy for my family.  What are your traditions? Who do you miss? Who do you think of during the holidays?  I would love to hear from my readers.  As always thank you for taking time out to read my blog. Now onto the next life lesson.
