Re:
This year was much less challenging ... that was such a dark place I was in, for so long.  It's hard to read.  Thank you for reading.

This is such an honest and lucid account of how you felt three years ago. I do hope this Christmas has been less challenging for you.

I think it's cruel to
exploit weaknesses, but I can't deny that I've done it.  Only in retaliation, which is wrong, but I'm learning.  I'm sorry you feel so sad.  I imagine it's part of you injury, but also, you've been through some overwhelming experiences.  Don't you love how cats think stinky shoes are so interesting? So they rub around on them and lick them? Eeeewww.  Sometimes in the summer when I wear flip flops, the cats come up and lick my feet.  It makes me jump, feels like sandpaper.  Happy Holidays Wen Don't be afraid to enjoy your tree, even if it's just a cat toy hanger.

Sweetie
you are a part of a new family now.  The family of those that love military men.  We don't forsake our own and just know that I am here if you need me.

My cousin's husband has a brain injury.
I have no idea what it's like, but I do know what they deal with every day. You couldn't tell anything by looking at him, but it affects their lives greatly. I know it's a huge challenge.

You're a strong one, Temple, whether you think so now or not. Your writing lets a lot of that show. It's like you say, you're human, with human doubts, worries, the whole bag o bricks. Don't sweat it.

Hope all works out for you and the holidays are good. Take care!

Wendi - I hope your Christmas gets better. AT least you have a tree...all
I have up is a candle.  BTW - I quit that job.  I felt like I was in high school again and that sucked.

shelly, I can't just drink eggnog straight...
It's gotta be in coffee or maybe have some rum in it.  I don't know why, but lattes made with good espresso are so yummie! 

I'm so sorry you are down, too.  Every where around me, including me, there seem to be Mom's who are sick, or who have recently passed, and it's in the air this holiday.  I'm sorry that your Mom is ill, too, and I hope you find some joy in the holidays.

I hate eggnog. LOL I think I'm the only person in the world that does.

Just like cheesecake, I can't stand it!

Christmas is getting me down this year.  I haven't even sent any cards which I usually do.  With my mom's illness and the bitch of a year I've had, I'm not into it.  I can't wait until it's over!
