23 December 2008



Yes life is about change, although sometimes I wish things could stay the same. It's hard when time marches on because sometimes people die or friendships fall away, but I've learned there's also joys. New relationships and new grandchildren.

It is strange, that's a good way to put it, when holidays come around and a loved one is no longer physically there. But she'll be in your hearts and minds no doubt as you observe Christmas with your father and other family members.


My heart goes out to you.

Pam/Digging (Austin)

You and your family are in my thoughts this Christmas, Pam. Peace to you all.


I understand. Hope you find some smiles from the memories of past holidays.


Geri, thanks for your kind comment. We did quite well in our 'muddling', I'm proud to say - and may have started a new tradition too. That was sure nice.

Carol, yes - 'strange' covered it. Things were just off, not quite right - like a parallel universe. I did realize how important it was for me to spend time with her brother and sisters (my uncle and aunts), as well as one of Mom's good friends. That felt good to me.

MNGarden,thank you. I hope that you had a nice holiday.

Pam/Digging, thank you so much - I hope that you and your family had a nice Christmas in your new home. That was probably fun!

Layanee, I'm guessing that you do for sure. We did pretty well overall, and I think my Father was proud of how we both honored old traditions and perhaps started a new one. We made it through okay! I hope that you had a nice holiday too.
