Holidays can be Tough
The holiday season was busy this year. Fun was had by all, including Mom and her friends at her residence. The post-holiday blues hit me on New Years.
Holidays can be an especially difficult time for families. The time of year reminds you how different things used to not so long ago, how involved and happy your loved one was back then. It makes you wish you could have those years back.
For me it was the sound of mom’s laughter I missed. She always got so much pleasure from all of us opening our gifts at Christmas. That and the fun we would have cooking dinner together.
Go easy on yourself if it happens to you too.
