The holiday season is coming. For once I am looking forward to them. Something has changed. There isn't the usual dread and emptiness.
It's not that I am a grinch but it's just that they seem to require so much effort and energy at times. The holidays can be very demanding in an odd way. Cheeriness can be exhausting.
But this year I am eager for them. I'm looking forward to the coziness of winter, the romance of falling snow, the time spent with friends, all of it.
Merry Christmas everybody….
