… I detest family-oriented holidays, like Christmas.

They make me bitter that I’m missing such a vital person in my family. They make me angry that I don’t get to share these happy moments with that special person anymore. They make me sad because I am missing out on possibly great moments in life.

Luckily, these feelings fade very quickly and I am able to embrace the holiday spirit and enjoy it with my family.

Thank you Dad, for all our good times, and for being there in spirit with me as I celebrate every  holiday in the future.

Merry Christmas…

… and Happy Holidays!

May you and your family have a very warm and joyous Christmas surrounded by your loved ones! Wishing you all the very best and great health in the new year and beyond! Love!
