But what if you are missing someone this holiday....

"If you think you're too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room."
~~Anita Roddick                    

The holidays can be such a source of joy, but also a source of stress and strong emotions. This will be our families first Christmas without Gramma. (My husbands Grandmother passed in October) Thanksgiving was hard, Christmas will be harder.

Last year she gave all of the children "The Night Before Christmas" Book, recorded with her voice. That is also difficult, but all of these strong emotions that I have, and must hide away for the children's sakes, lead me to a positivity and I hope it may help you as well. (Don't we all have something??)

No matter where or how you leave an impression on the world; no matter how insignificant of a person you think you are; when the mundane day to day repetition gets to you; when you feel like there are no more dreams.....

You are only building up to the impressions you will make on your grandchildren
The memories we have of those we've lost are not of things. We miss the feeling of their hugs.
The memories you make NOW of tradition, and love and joy, WILL hang on through generations. A Nintendo DSi XL 3D will not.

Missing you Gram :) But you've taught me how to LOVE right. That is an impact that I can only HOPE to have on someone. Thank you!
