Have you ever felt alone for the holidays? I know this year is going to be the first for me. I grew up with being with family for holidays and special occasions. It is difficult for me since I have a learning disability and my life hasn’t been easy by any means. I feel that no one should be alone for the holiday season. Everyone deserves to spend time with their family and friends.
I grew up being around my relatives for special occasions and holidays. My family is quite large. The terrible thing is I only see my relatives when their are funerals and weddings. That is few and far between. I can only imagine how hard it is for those who serve in the military feel and their families. I give those who are in the military and their families so much credit especially when they are away from their loved ones.
Everyone misses those who are no longer with us during this special time of year. I know this time of year is hard for me since those who passed away are missing out on what I’m doing good in life. My grandparents are no longer living. I do miss them since they played a huge role in my life. This special time of year families should come together and be with their families to create memories no matter you celebrate.
During this time of year I reflect on everything that my grandparent taught me. They would be pleased to see me doing well. You my think I’m crazy I believe in spirits. I did have an experience that changed my life. When my Noni passed away I got a feeling of sadness before I ever knew my noni passed away last year one of my friends told me that I have empathic abilities and I realized after that it made sense to me how I can feel others emotions.
When Christmas time comes around I think back to how much she has helped me grow into the woman I am today. She is still my inspiration since she kept my relatives together for so longer. I will continue to fight for what I believe in. I won’t give up on the goals I have.
“Christmas will always be as long as we stand heart to heart and hand in hand.” -Dr. Seuss
During the holiday season everyone comes together and spends time with those they love. No matter what you celebrate we all have special traditions during the holiday season. We all make special memories during the holiday season.
We all have something we are thankful for in our lives since Thanksgiving is Thursday we should all take some time out and remember the things we are thankful for in our lives. I know I have a lot of things I’m thankful for as a whole and yes AMCPress is one of the things I’m thankful for since I have a great crew who has been really doing a great job. The crew is a like another part of my family. I see big things in the future coming for AMCPress which will take work however it will be worth it in the end.
What are you thankful for?
