Traditionally Speaking

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It’s been difficult to get excited about the holidays this year. Having had so many life changing events since February, baking cookies and stuffing stockings has hardly been on the radar. Nevertheless, things happen to everyone everyday and if life doesn’t end, then surely it must go on.


What I am finding though, is that there is comfort in traditions. Doing little things, like putting up and decorating a holiday tree can even be reassuring when the normal seems to have gone out of life. Writing and posting my seasonal greeting cards was a welcome distraction this year and less of the chore I usually find it. And of course, nothing beats retail therapy even if you are not buying anything for yourself.

So, while everything is still too raw to feel appreciation about the year, I am grateful for the traditions that help me focus on the good stuff and the promise of the brand new year to come.
