Here is some Christmas cheer.
I know how you feel about losing someone on a big day. Maybe that is why you are ill. This is the first year I have not been ill on Christmas for 32 years. I finally got over my pain. See, my dad left my mom and I on Christmas morning when I was 13. They had talk about it and my mom kept telling him to leave a few days later. But, he chose that day. I never saw or heard them fight, this was a complete shock to me. I can remember every detail of that morning. He figured since the other 5 kids were grown and gone it was time. I was now a teen. I could handle it. HAHA! So, I always figured me getting sick at Christmas was a mind thing. This year I was not going to. I now have 2 wonderful granddaughters who understand what Christmas is about. I made it for them this time.
So, I hope you are feeling better soon. Go, out and enjoy the day. Remeber one day at a time wins the battle.
