weird @ss day

Thursday, December 25, 2008

This was last year. Doesn't feel right with mom gone, Tom gone, dad not feeling "right". Last night was the anniversary of Ross' death and always a bad time for me anyway but we opened Henry's presents well before bedtime and this a.m. just slept in. Spent the day putting up the flat screen for Henry and building dads desk. I did a ton of work on my computer and cooked a decent dinner. Just a weird @ss day and not at all like Christmas!

    Maybe bad @ass day, but mine wasn't too thrilling.....Son leaves for NY, daughter living in NY, My brother and dad both passed away years ago right around Christmas time. My DH didn't have any gifts to give me (except I did get flowers)....because of no work for the year. Just me and him spent Christmas together, nothing special. However, I did get to spend 26th with my mom and sisters, so that was nice!

    Hey Di - Well, you made it through the day... my first year after mom died, I cried all day (and the day before, and the day after) -- that was 8 years ago, and it's still not the same... but I do find some joy and peace in the day. I also focus on the true meaning of Christmas and that helps too!

    It's never easy when loved one's are gone, and sometimes the memories are a bit too much to bear. But it would be worse without the memories, I guess. Let's hope we never find out. A good spiritual friend reminded me that I didn't have to think of it as christmas...it was just Dec 25th, and we do it one day at a time.

    I have felt that way now for 5 years now Di. When people so much a part of your world dissappear from it, life does seem "weird". For me it has never gotten "normal" again, don't know if it ever will. All we can do is give the loved ones we have left a big hug and a kiss and hold them to us as long as we can.


    Your son is a real cutiepie!
