Holidays are never the same

Holidays are never the same.

You never forget…

But they hit you harder.

You try to remember the good times…

eating “Uncle” Julie’s Christmas cookies till they make her sick…

the joy on her face at getting an Easter Basket while still in college…

handmade valentine cards written with love…

firework “shows” put on by her little Brother…

holding her candle sitting in the pew on Christmas Eve.

You can’t seem to get any of the Holiday Spirits back…

it’s just another day…

like all the rest…

another day without…

her smile…

her laughter…

her “poochie pregnant” belly hugs.

You put on a brave front and face the day…

like you do every day.
