The constant stress of money, health & holidays seems to get earlier each year. The holidays are getting less important to me. When I was able to work & my health issues weren't as bad I LOVED all the holidays.  Decorating, big family gatherings and the kids getting excited about them. Now the family is just who I can count on 1 hand, kids are grown, no money & health problem for me & my mom. I can't seem to get interested or excited about anything. Will this be the last Thanksgiving & Christmas with my mom? Trying to make gifts but I keep messing things up then I get frustrated. This past year has been one of the worst I've had. Every year I say "this year will be better"....but it just seems to get worse than the last yr. The many items on the "to do list" gets longer everyday. Sometimes I wish I could run away at times. For how my life works though that would be too easy...Which my life has been anything but easy!! Just have to keep fighting I guess.

Hey Kelly. I think a lot of people would agree with you that the holidays seem to be always just around the corner and that when life is throwing all the negatives at you all at once it is hard to enjoy them like we have in our memories. All motivation gets thrown out the window and people tend to dwell on how things used to be. It is hard in the moment when things are getting you down to try and focus on the things you still have. The time left you have with your mom, while you have the time make it last. Even if you don't have the house full of kids and family it is still fun to get active and decorate, make goodies, and do the things you used to even if it is just for the two of you. You can always spread the holiday joy to neighbors and friends. That is what we did this year. Even though it was just the three of us here at the house we still decorated, made the big meal, and made cookies and candy. Then we took leftovers to the neighbors to put a smile on their face. 

I know it is not an easy task especially when the world has you down. But the holidays are there to remind us to be thankful for what we do have in our lives. Even the little things can brighten our moods just enough to where it makes it all worth it. I hope you had wonderful holidays with your mom Kelly and that there are many more to come. 

HUGS.
