Friday Catch Up

`If you celebrate the holidays how are you coping? Maxin' & relaxing because you're not hosting & are dreaming about how many slices of your aunt's famous pie you're going to eat? Or is the stress gearing up because you are hosting 25 relatives at your new place, for the first time? The holidays are pretty tame since I moved out west. The family that would usually get together are on the eastern side of the continent, so that option is out, this year. I'm getting back into the swing of the holidays, without my mom. I refuse to be sad. I'm making new memories & being grateful for past ones. Life is to be lived, even if sadness flutters through. Happiness, peace & contentment is all I want for Christmas.🙏🏾 Whoever wants to come along for the ride is more than welcome!😊
