This says it all.

I need to start to let go, and become what I might be. It’s over 8 months now, and I am absolutely dreading Christmas time. Even though my girlfriend has invited me for dinner, it will not be the normal holiday.

I loved to cook a full Christmas meal, have Christmas pudding afterwards, and just being with Len. This year the last day of my week at the timeshare will be December 25th, so will be driving home on Christmas Eve. Who would want to pack, and drive home to an empty house on such an important time in the Christian calendar? Certainly not me.

So that’s why I agree with this inspirational quote.



  1. Thank you for sharing!!… every day will bring back memories and the pain will slowly go away.. “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” (Dr. Seuss).. perhaps in some manner (no matter how small) you can make it your kind of Christmas no matter where you are.. 🙂

    Have a wonderful holiday filled with peace and love and until we meet again..
    May your spirit only know peace
    May your heart only know love
    May all your dreams come true
    May your life’s journey be filled with happiness
    And life is all that you wish for it to be….
    (Larry “Dutch” Woller)


  2. I love your attitude but this is your first Christmas without Len. Don’t beat yourself up if at any point you need to crawl into a hole and have a good cry. Sometimes that is what it takes to come back feeling better and stronger. 💞
