    Christmas Blues

    I am a single Mom.  Divorced for three years.  Stuck in Alaska for at least another 5 years.  I want to be in love again.  Find my best friend.  I miss the sun.  I keep trying to get into Christmas for my kids sake.  But it is really hard this...

    Christmas is never the same without my mother

    (r.i.p) or my brother and nephew being so far away. Thank God for my bed friend and her family. Blessings from the most high. :) :) :)

    This is not how I want to live.

    I'm tired of waking up alone on Christmas Day and every day in between. I thought I was a good person. I'm not sure what I did to deserve this loneliness.

    It can be a difficult time of year.

    Many of us have experienced how the holiday season often magnifies certain distresses in our lives - the most prominent usually being loneliness. It can be an illness or loss of someone close that emphasizes a certain void. We just don't feel comfortable or complete. These, and...

    It's been my first Christmas in care this year.

    I think I felt quite lonely once all my carers family were round, because well I'm not really apart of the family. Christmas is supposed to be, what I think, 'family' time. It's like I didn't know where to turn to or who to talk to. I'd rather of been on my own, I don't know...

    Sigh...

    Something about the Christmas holidays that I love so much. The snowy days, the decorations, wrapping presents, Christmas carols, the television specials. But I always end up with a feeling of being broken hearted. Like so many other things, I build it up in my head, just to get...

    I'm staring at the ceiling fan,

    so let me see... I think of life like a wheel, like the ceiling fan I am looking at. The center of the wheel is a hub. All of the spokes I imagine is what life is (which represent relationships, family, career, goals, etc.) which come from the hub. We all build our lives around...
