Thanksgiving 2012

I usually loathe the holidays and have been quoted as saying I would rather take a sleeping pill before Thanksgiving and wake up in January than suffer the rough the season.  It's different this year and I haven't quite put my finger on the reason why.  I crawled into the attic today to gather the Christmas decorations and I actually enjoyed it. 

I have friends who will experience their first holiday season with the absence of loved ones lost this year.  I know how you feel and my heart goes out to you.  All I can say is that it does get easier.  In my case, I suspect it has something to do with having my granddaughter around.  I might not ever figure out why.  I've decided not to second guess it this year.  I'll just roll with it.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
