Dear friends,
Believe me, this is a difficult season to be depressed.  I am hoping that each of you gets through this time with some relief.  Years ago, I read a comment in a book that said:  "Will this matter a year from now?"  I have found that what is troubling us now will NOT be troubling us in a year.  I know it sounds like a year is a long time, but remember back to last Christmas?  Think positive thoughts, even though it seems we cannot do this. 
Life does go on and WE ALL CAN MAKE IT!
2009 will be divine!  Watch and see!
With warm regards,

getting by

Thank you Linda,

Yes the holidays can be so difficult. It is sad the amount of stress that can occur. It can become demanding and nerve wracking. But like you said, about a year from now. That is a good way of looking at things. And I believe when we know the true meaning of the holiday, it really makes a difference at how we look at it. It is so commercialized now a days. But I must say that when I watch my granddaughter opening up her presents, it makes it all worthwhile. She is four and at that age where she just amazes me.

I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy new year. Thanks for the positive post.

Hugs, Karen

Older women are hot, hot, hot............all those hot flashes.  I wish you and all a Merry Christmas and I agree a year from now no one will remember any live today and stay in the moment.

Hugs to you sweetie.
