Merry Christmas, ATS!
I'm so lucky to be spending the holidays with my family, especially when so many will be alone. But my heart is hurting, and I wanted to share it
with you. ATS is like family to me.
I miss my Granny. Every Christmas, we'd spend the day at her house, eating lunch and opening gifts. She's been gone for three years now, but she was
the glue that held our family together. With her death, the family lost touch and no longer interacts together except in the most superficial ways.
I miss my Granny. The smell of her turkey and stuffing; her Christmas tree with the hidden bird ornament that would sing at the most inoppurtune
times. I miss her mischievous nature and her practical jokes, which I absolutely inherited. I miss her laugh, her smile, her warm and loving hugs.
As life goes on, we lose those we love. They become cherished memories, echoes of nostalgia that gather close during the holidays.
Tonight I will kiss my son, hug my husband, and prepare for the festiveness of tomorrow. But part of me will be remembering Christmases past...and
missing my Granny.
To all of us who miss someone this year.....much love to you.
Merry Christmas to all,
