Yes it’s that time of year again. It’s the holidays and ‘tis the season to be stressed! Crowded malls, last minute shopping, endless lines, 200 cards to write….what? You mean it’s only me who does that? Bummer! No wonder I never get many back.
For the average person, there’s enough stress. Add cancer, or illness, into the equation and this season can be the Everest of anxiety.
Have you ever thought what survivors go through on big holidays like this? For one, most of us don’t have the energy to do the full Christmas thing. Go out in the freezing cold and put lights on my trees? Are you kidding me? I’d have to take a three hour nap afterwards. Bake cookies for the neighbors? Sorry neighbors but the cookie barrel’s empty this year. It takes enough of my strength to drive to the grocery store and find a turkey small enough that we won’t be eating it for the next 3 months, let alone decorate.
So if you drive past my house and think “boy, those miserable people have no Christmas spirit” it’s because my Christmas spirit is being reserved for my family and friends.
