This is a time for family and friends to get together but unfortunately I will not see or be allowed to visit some of my children or grand children. Some members of the forum have viewed my story at Title: The Impossible Dream. My post today is to ask if there are any others out there that have difficulties at this time of year? Take care

I used to have a lot of trouble during the holidays. Being secluded in a safe house with 40-50 other members, we relied on each other as family. Thanksgiving and Christmas were the biggest holidays, of course, but other holidays were also a time to put aside work and enjoy a comradely sing. We enjoyed expertly made turkeys and hams, had all of the trimmings of course, and then afterward we sang labor songs. We couldn't see our real families, so we were our own family.

It was difficult the first holiday season for me because even though I was with my family I still thought about the ones left behind, the ones still in. I knew they were probably enjoying dinner and the companionship of each other. There are some I still miss but I have moved on with my life. It is difficult. It will get better as time goes on as long as you embrace what you have and continue to move forward.

No, I do not hate Christmas. I do have emotional feelings about all the Christmases that I spent being lost and abnormal. Something that I do to try to reconcile this hurt feeling is to give generously to th Angel Tree, to try to make some poor children have a fun Christmas. I also remember that this celebration is to honor the birth of Jesus Christ, and that I love.
