Sometimes...

... you feel like you are really ok and are going to survive this. And then along comes Christmas. I am really not in the mood for Christmas this year. I have not done much shopping and am afraid my gifts are all going to be really sub-standard. I just cannot think what to get anyone. I keep thinking about last Christmas and Kendra being here. I have actually just been having a bad couple of days. We went camping this weekend and I really did enjoy it. Of course, like most family events I would keep thinking how it would have been different if Kendra had been there. Not better, not worse, just different. Then when I got back I had a bit of a downer, just a bad few days.

Last night we went to dinner at a restaurant where we had been before with Kendra. And of all the tables there, Gathry wanted to sit at the table where we sat with her last time. He hadn't remembered that we had last sat there with her and agreed to sit somewhere else when I said I didn't want to sit there. Strange the things that affect one.

We are going to PE to his family for Christmas. I know it is going to be a difficult Christmas without Kendra here but I suppose being away from home will be a bit of a distraction and Branston will enjoy being with his cousins. I probably won't update again for a while so would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a great 2007. For us, it just has to be better than 2006.

I would also like to wish Raichelle a happy birthday for yesterday and aunt Ethel for the 23rd.

I am thinking about you -- it is such a hard time during the holidays, and it kind of just slammed me in the last week. I think we are all just doing the best we can to get through it....and that is all we can really ask of ourselves. Wishing peace to you....
