Sometimes the holidays hit you in the heart.
We had a great day today. Baked 4 different types of cookies. Watched Christmas movies and spent some beautiful family time. Still, I can’t help but to daydream about my dad. I lost my dad when I was 14 Years old. It’s been a long road since and so much has changed. I wonder what life would be like with him by my side. I wonder what my moms smile would look like. Would things be different? Would our struggles have been a lot less? This time of year, although my absolute favorite time of year, I can’t help but to feel the pain and loss. If only I could have had just one more day, with the greatest daddy anyone could have ever asked for! I know I’m not the only one. I can think of a handful of people that are feeling the sting as holidays approach. I just want you to know that celebrating, feeling happy and carrying on holiday traditions is ok. But, stopping to feel the pain and loss and miss someone that your heart cries for, well... that’s ok too and you’re not alone. Love and hugs.
