        • I’m sorry Judy, it must be rough to face a Christmas without your mom.  

          I’d gladly loan you a handful of relatives for Christmas.....you want kids, adults, old people.... how about three labradors????

        • Hi Judy I understand how you feel I miss my mom every year around Thanksgiving and Christmas she passed away in 1991 from Cancer, but always remember that your mom's spirit is with you and  you're never alone because Jesus is with you always, ".....when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
          Be blessed my friend.

        • Hi Judy.. sorry about that.  This would be my second year without my son and alone.  I actually do not want to be with any family on Thanksgiving or Christmas for I would be happy for others but may be extra sad for myself.  

          I tried to remember how I passed Christmas last year... not pleasant.  I was bit by my dog and was in the ER.  

          This year, I have to face it.  Don’t know what to tell you.  Take care.

        • Judy, I do understand too. My Mother passed away the Sunday before Thanksgiving in 1997 from cancer. I had grown up knowing her family far better than I knew my Dad’s. Her family was small with a lot of only children and I was alone. I had lost 18 family members in 30+ years. I was scared that first holiday facing Thanksgiving and Christmas which is my Birthday. Yet I was great to spend it alone.I really had a peaceful expereince and it was nice to not be in a caregivier mode and have time to remember and reflect. It was a time to start new traditions and to remember that I had great friends who are like family too. I am praying for you

        • Judy, from one friend to another, I really think you should join a fun group where you meet lots of nice people like yourself and its amazing how many friends you will make by just doing that.
          Check out local churches, there are always groups for women there that share common interests just to chat or learn a new hobby . Also check out local Craft shops like Michaels or AC Moore where they have fun art knitting etc classes where lots of women enjoy learing something new and making a friend or two along the way.
          I think its really important to make friends it keeps us alive longer and the laughter going.
          GOOD LUCK! I really think you should do it.

        • Judy I understand just how you feel:) The suggestion to join a church join or active book discussion group, even a volunteer program would all be great ideas. I will be moving into a place and living alone for the first time ever in a few days and I am excited and scared too. Maybe we can talk and share! :)happy

        • Will send you prayers of strength!  Think of this as a time to think about YOU! and what you would like your life to lead to.  Get some meditation CD’s, join groups of interest, take a class!  Life can take us down many roads, it is just time to make a different turn!
          You can do it, and you will be alright! It may be quiet, but quiet isn’t always a bad thing. Take a nice hot bubble bath and let out a big sigh and think positive about the new road you are going to journey on.
