...Why can't I find you? When did you go away? Was it after mom died, or after we lost the baby? Why do things just seem to get harder, and harder? I dread this time of year...

refocus your thoughts and rather than pity party yourself - try going to Golisano's Childrens Hospital and volunteer. Stop and meet some of the kids. I promise you, you will leave there, run to the mall, and start buying gifts for these young kids with Christmas joy running through your heart. If you're not a kid-fanatic, visit a nursing home - again, there you can volunteer just your time in a sing along - and soon you will make a friend and find that they deserve something more than you will ever need. Don't let Christmas find you - go find Christmas. Honestly, you can contact your local Social Service dept - and find a family in need. All this does put your personal losses into perspective. It's awful to lose the ones we love - but sometimes it's even more worse to watch the ones we love suffer. Have a Christmas Heart and find a charity that will fulfill your love of the holiday spirit. Merry Christmas!

No that's me silly...just ask Just Askin'.

Seriously though you had some great suggestions. But sometimes you can't force yourself to feel something you don't. Don't feel bad if you don't feel all the holiday tingle.

I went to Golisano's Childrens Hospital - and let me tell you... whatever has brought you down...whatever it was that made you feel sorry for yourself, all changes when you leave there. You smile at what these kids left you with (they honestly can see a bright light when doom seems the forecast). Honestly, I didn't set out to just go there to make myself feel better. I went with a friend to visit a mutual friends sick child - at first I felt uncomfortable - but I am sooooo glad that I went. Afterwards, we stopped at the mall, bought some toys for some of the special kids there and sent them to the hospital. Kind of brought that drudgery of Christmas shopping into perspective. It wasn't about spending money on what YOU HAVE to buy - but more fun to "spend the thought" of making a little kid HAPPY. It was a great experience. I've been feeling good about it for the past couple of days.
