Shopping yesterday reminded me how close the Holidays are. Even felt a little sad until I realized it really is up to me, myself and I. Do I want to be miserable, sad and cry all through the season? Or do I want to enjoy the music and gift giving and make it a very special Christmas? I have always been like a big kid loving everything about the Celebration of Christmas. So I have decided to still send cards even though they will be just from me. Still going to do baking and try a new recipe like I always do. Thank God for freezers! Still going to buy gifts and put up a tree with all the decorations. Invitations are starting to come to drop by for some Christmas cheer. I will accept each and every invite. If no one offers to cook this year I will put on the dinner. Ron has been gone for almost 10 months now and my gift to him this year is make the day as special as I possible can! They say to start a new tradition, that it will help. Not sure what that will be just yet but will make a conscience effort to make one. I have to get tough. This year being the first all my family and friends will want to care for me. But next year they will probably think I am over it now. If I slide a bit I know I can always read all the messages here. Still have my DS family.
