Well 11-11-11 passed and now we‘re getting close to the holidays.  I am actually getting excited.  I didn’t think I would this year because my day passed in July.  

heartbreakUntil yesterday I wasn’t having the holidays...I wasn’t decorating...I wasn’t doing anything...I didn’t want to go anywhere.  Then all of a sudden I changed my mind...isn’t that great?  I said to my husband “do you mind if we have the holidays as we always do“? He said “Sure“, but with a very surprised look because I was so dead against in just a few days before. I’m ready now.heart

I know how much loved the holidays so I am going to continue loving them too and enjoying family and friends as he did.  I miss him dearly but I must live a happy life until we meet again, that doesn’t mean I won’t ball as I’ve been doing, every now and then.  He didn’t like when I was sad so I’m doing my best not to be right now but it took 4 months to even feel 1/2 myself.  

I have to live my life in my normal positive state for myself and those around me.  I’m going to do my very best to do that!  

I just realized as I’m writing he died 4 months ago today.  My daddy.

    • Marion...I know you are missing your daddy greatly.  Mine has been gone for over 13 years now.  He died on Easter Sunday morning...sunrise...April 12, 1998.  I thought to myself...what a wonderful day and time to die.  But I’m okay with it.  We‘re all going to die one day.  I’m 100% sure we will all check out of this place.  I know my father is in heaven and I will join him there one day.  So....for me...I just live my life the best way I know how...live it to the fullest...and do what I know my father would want me to do.  This life is only temporary.  So I live it...be the best I can be...and live the way I should.  

      I’m glad you are celebrating the holidays.  I’m sure your father would want you to and to be happy.  You‘re gonna miss him but in time it will get easier.  

      So enjoy this time...start some new traditions...do something different...adopt a family in need....volunteer at a soup kitchen...do something to help someone else.  It’s amazing what that alone will do for your mental health.

    • I am going to start with soup kitchens next year... every one in the area has been booked for the past 3 years.. crazy huh?  but wonderful!!!  No, I decided I am still having all three holidays here!!!!!!   You are right though...helping others, especially on the holidays is a blessing in itself. It’s a win-win for everyone.
