It’s Not Really Christmas…Is It?

The time is…almost Christmas day and to me it feels like just the beginning of another week. That could be because of all the changes that have recently occurred in my life.

One of the most drastic changes was the passing of my dear uncle, Michael. That alone has taken away all of my holiday cheer. Sure I’ve listened to a few of my favorite Christmas songs, but that hasn’t put me in the holiday spirit. To be honest, what I had hoped our holiday plans would look like have come to be nothing of the sort. I wanted to be with all of our family, laughing and enjoying our time together, but there haven’t been many laughs lately.

To me the holidays have always been one where my family got together and shared tons of laughs, love, gifts, and food. We never forgot the reason for the season and that brought us the biggest joy; remembering Jesus’s birth.

I haven’t forgotten those things and even though I feel the way I do it just doesn’t feel much like such a joyous time this year.

I know the holidays can bring out a lot of emotions, and they are not always the happy ones that we hope for, but that doesn’t mean that we have to lose our spirit of happiness. I am trying my best to believe that and hold on to the past memories of all the holiday cheer that was always felt.

Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you and yours!
