… 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.
