Holidays tend to hit me kind of hard. As the “away” daughter, this is a large part of it.
Probably the fact that I don’t have children to create new traditions with, is another.
Maybe it is just the changing of seasons and the passing of time.
But these emotions can make me more than a little blue.
But just as they always do–they will pass.
And that much easier, if I am just gentle with myself and am clear about what this sensation is.
Nothing is wrong. Needs to be fixed.
Life is just beautiful. And fleeting.
I hope that you are loving yourself and your own wonderful life, whether you celebrate anything this weekend or not.
I look forward to sharing this coming Springtime with you.
