Thanks for the gentle reminder. I lost my mom when I was 22, and though it wasn't around a holiday, I find I miss her most at Thanksgiving. I even picked up the phone to call her the first few Thanksgivings.
I appreciate your words, and will try to be more aware of everyone's story.

Lee Ann,
Thank you for a sensitive story. Holidays, particularly Christmas, have a tendency to bring out the most extreme emotions, both good and bad. You handled this very well.

Agreed. Deft handling of a very difficult subject. I often find that writing about things helps to clear my mind of them, and hope this was true in some way for you.

Thank you, it was difficult to write and I debated the wisdom of it for some time...but I knew it needed to be done.
