Ok guys, this is a depressing post. I am very sorry and I don't expect any responses so you can stop reading now if you don't want me to drag you down with me.
In light of all the gifts we all want to shower our children with, I just got a little reminder of what Christmas is about. I have shared with you all that my granfather has cancer. I got the call last week that this will almost certainly be the last holiday season we get to celebrate with him. He has officially been given the "six months to live" death sentence. I am heartbroken, to say the very least. This is a man I admire and adore. He makes me feel like a little girl again while at the same time making me feel like I can take on the world. More accurately, I am devastated.
It is Christmas time. I want to get him a gift. Something worthy, although there is nothing, absolutely nothing. So I turned to Google, because Google can answer anything, right?? Yup, big mistake. Anyway, here is a good article if you feel so inclined to read.
I am trying to make this year different. I still want to shower my child with gifts. More gifts than ever. But I want to shower him with love as well. I will be spending as much time as I can afford with my family and just tryiing to keep it all together.
I know I am not the only one going through this right now so I thought I would share. Maybe someone can relate or also needs to vent.
Also, be nice to people. You never know who is out with you because it is their last chance. I say this because my papaw said that all he wanted to do was go to Red Lobster. How many times have I been to a place that isn't very special to me at the time and someone was sitting next to me enjoying the last meal they may ever have from that place?
Man, this is tough : /
