    Hi PeggySue et all,

    My daughter and I have been alone for 11years. This year hit me very hard.
    I have been very moody and bitter for a couple weeks.

    Today I received my copy of Angels on Earth magazine. What an uplifting blessing to be able to read this today.

    I am reminded of all I have to be thankful for. I have an AWESOME young lady for a daughter - smart, beautiful and humble.
    We have critters and we live in the good ol U.S.

    If anyone reading this does not receive Angels on Earth,
    See ya around MM,
    :-) !

    Happy Holiday everyone!

    I have spent most of my holidays alone...well, maybe not completely as I do have my beloved cats to keep my company. Of course, my clients are always willing to host and entertain me, but I find that I would rather be with my cats. Now what does that say about me?

    For me, most holidays are really just another day. It is when my clients have more free time and want to spend it with me and their horse.Last year I volunteered at a local soup kitchen a few days. This year, who knows?

    I have so much to be thankful for in my life. And this year, I imagine I will wake up Christmas am and come right here to MM to be with those of you who are here. I know that Santa will miss my house again. And that is "ok". I think what happened was that Santa heard that my cats killed the Easter Bunny. Seems to be a tradition with them....so maybe Santa is afraid that my cats will eat him or his reindeer?

    May all our dreams come true this season. May all the good you have brought into other peoples lives be returned to you tenfold.

    This is a picture of a snowman family enjoying the holidays togather.

    Hey Peggy...I kind of thought something was off, otherwise Cutie wouldn't have posted what she did. Thanks for explaining.

    That's a wonderful act on your part, to buy ham's for people without. I usually help with a family, but this year I hadn't been to Church much, so I wasn't in the loop. I'll figure out another way. Lots of trees with name cards that can be bought for too. I enjoy doing that since my kids are all grown up.

    Hi Peggy Sue,
    While it might not be the same as kissing your loved one under the mistle toe, what about volunteering in a soup kitchen for the homeless? Sometimes giving can boost your spirits. I'll be spending part of my day rubbing elbows with the less fortunate.

    Excuse me MISS KNOW IT ALL Cutiebooty but isn't the "being and staying stong" da pot callin' da kettle black??? Did I go to some foreign country, get sick, almost lose my life, slowly recover?? Noooooooooooooooooooo. Did I stay upbeat, push myself letting people know what their posts meant to me, did I defend my friends when I could barely type? Nooooooooooooooooooooooo. Hmmm, now I wonder who did Miss Smarty Black Pot?


    Am I missing something here? Cause didn't Cutie just extend a heart warming invitation to you for Christmas? hmmmm...is there something between the lines I'm not reading?

    I commend you in your strength Peg...I've never been faced with spending Xmas alone. If I had to I would endure the day, but chances are I would do everything in my power to have company...I'd invite friends and family over. Maybe that option is open to you also. Take care.

    What I say here won't make it any easier for you. If you are alone it can be very emotionally hard. I am not here to give advice only the reassurance that yes, you will make it through the day. Some how, some way, you will cope. For some, being alone on this very special day is something they refuse to deal with. Some, would soon be with someone, anyone so they are not alone. Those are the ones that I believe have it the hardest. Some, simply just wait the day out...I am one of those. However, have been there before and know what I am dealing with. For those that this Christmas is the first time alone, those I admire the most. There is no comfort in knowing that you will and then have made it but still, I think they are the strong ones because of another lesson of life that they have learned. Holidays alone do take something out of you but you have earned the right to know you have made it. To some, that is a small accomplishment but to me it is a great one. To know that somehow, someway you will make it, gives you a strength you perhaps didn't know you had. Maybe, it isn't a strength you want to earn but it is one that will serve you well in life.


    Re:Christmas is going to be especially hard for me this year. Anyone that feels alone, please know that you are not alone.
