Great advice, Carol. The holidays are for making memorable happy holidays. If your family can’t give you that, do your own happy thing.
Ah, yes, the holidays. They’ve certainly changed over the years and sometimes I wish I could go to an island instead. But I do love seeing my parents, and since Dad will be 89 on Christmas Day that is something to celebrate!
For so many, it will be tough this year, won’t it? Thanks for helping many survive it!
I saved this article last year to share with my kids. Probably something I need to revisit every year! Thank you!
Perfect timing because I just came from Target, where this elderly woman turned to me in the gift card aisle and whispered, “I can’t wait for the holidays to be over.” I laughed, told her I understood and wished her happy ones!
Happy holidays Carol. This time of year is what we make it – we can enjoy it or we can succumb to the pressures. I prefer the first option.
