I know it sounds strange, as this is supposed to be the happiest time of year and in many ways it is, but for me I also get down because it seems to come so fast and then all of the sudden it's over! I can't express how much I love the month of December, seeing all the beautiful decorations, hearing the timeless Christmas carols, baking cookies and wrapping gifts- these things bring me such joy. All the hype and excitement leading up to the big day comes so incredibly fast and then, just as quickly as it got here it comes to an abrupt halt, and I'm left feeling very empty inside. My brother is home for such a short time and I don't know when the next time we'll all be together will be. I'm trying to stay positive and in the moment (which is extremely difficult for me to do), and focus on the fact that he will be coming in on the 21st! Does anyone else go through times like this? Sorry to be so down.
I hope everyone had a nice weekend.
