I am of the opinion that our American holidays have become very commercialized and PC.

Thanksgiving and Christmas are slow times in my family now. Only my sister and I live in Texas. We are the elders of the family and she has no children. My daughter not being with us anymore places a level of sorrow upon me. I do not receive any communication from her children so I don't let it beat me up anymore. My son is always on the road doing his own thing. Sandra has her own sorrow with the memories of her late son. Sis and BIL join Sandra and me for a meal in a restaurant and that is our Thanksgiving and Christmas. Sandra's other son tries courageously to keep the traditions going with his wife and three children but it is hard.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
