We had dinner with my friend Kaye, her husband Jamie and her dad and all his friends tonight.
Kaye's mom passed away this year and they are now having to create some new traditions.
It is tough, those first holidays after a parent passes.  You miss the old traditions but you know, they won't ever be the same.  You hold on to the memories and forge ahead on a path that you just didn't think you would ever have to take.

Our friend Brian was there tonight also.  His wife Mary passed away this year too.  It was so sad to not see Kaye's mom Nila or our friend Mary.

So this holiday season is like so many, there is the joy and there can be sadness.  Thank goodness for our memories and let us remember to make the most of this season.

Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. I like the fact that you have a group of friends like this. It helps to have people understand that you are missing an important part of your holiday traditions and can share those valuable memories.

  2. It's nice that you could get together to share some memories and make new traditions.
