Bittersweet Holiday

The holidays are always bittersweet for me. I always have memories of my mom. She passed May 2015, and you would think I am learning to live without her…. I can’t!

I’m grateful to have learned her recipes so I can pass them down to my children, but I still miss her.

How do you cope with the holidays? What brings you out of the holiday blues?

I cope by mixing old traditions with new ones. My family and I now roast marshmallows on the fire pit. We put up the Christmas tree around Thanksgiving, and we do family games in the spirit of Christmas. It helps.

Just wanted to vent and get some of the heaviness off my heart, now to bring in the positivity😇
