    This Christmas season going to suck

    Post  Rickster on November 15th 2016, 8:55 pm

    It's not even Thanksgiving yet and I'm already for the Christmas season to be over. My mom loved this time of year she loved Christmas music and watching Christmas movies on Hallmark. Now that she's gone this season just hurts. I've already broken down and cried twice once when hearing I'll be home for Christmas at Disneyland to film my most recent vlog episode and again today at Jack in the box when I heard the line "Just like the one I use to know" from the song White Christmas and realized that I can never have the Christmases I use to know ever again.
    Not only is this my 2nd Christmas without my mom it'll be my 1st Christmas without my Grandma. I know that both my Mom and Gram are Heaven and finally have the peace that they deserve (my mom was a single mother who worked 2 jobs pretty much her entire adult life and my Gram had been in consent pain for years) and they are there with Him because of who's birth we celebrate this season. But knowing that sure doesnt make things easier.

    ...but at least it will suck from Florida.

    I've heard that starting a new tradition can help with transitioning to the new normal. Aside from that, all I have is empathy for you, bro.

    That really sucks.
    I like Mike's suggestion of starting some new traditions. Probably won't take the pain away, but might help you move forward.
    either way, praying that you can find joy and hope in Christ during this time.

    Sorry to hear that, Rickster. I can't imagine what that's like, so I don't really have any advice. I pray the Lord will give you the strength to get through the darkness and make it to the light on the other side. They say grief never actually goes away, it just gets more manageable.

    I'm thankful that you have the hope of Christ and eternal life, so you at least know your loved ones aren't gone forever. And I'm thankful that you can love.

    Disney World, Disney Land... whichever... Embarassed

    Here in Central New York, we are looking at up to a foot of snow falling on us this Sunday. (probably more like a couple of inches unless you're caught in a Lake effect band)
    What I meant was: enjoy that you are less likely to be dealing with that.

    60's is heater and hot coco weather lol the news weather man said no more 90s temperature in Nov and that was sad. I've lived in So Cal my entire life so I know I' a wimp when it comes to cold weather lol. But for some strange reason I like to joke about how cold it is here. I guess I want people to hate me lol

    Just did a quick conversion. 60 is 15 celcius, and 90 is 32 c.
    I would find 90 very uncomfortable, but 60 quite acceptable. Anything over 25C (77 f) and I start to moan and can't function.
    Not a lover of heat. Guess that's why I live just north of Antarctica.

    Where I live, when the temperatures start to hit 60/15 in the spring, we still have icy piles of plowed snow on the sides of the road. It is the time of year when birds start returning, when maple sap is running, when crocus and snow drops flower, and when thousands of pale people who haven't seen the sun in four or five months decide to go outside in flip flops and shorts. (more glare off our legs than off the snow)

    It is quite literally the ugliest time of the year, but we get SO excited to see those hardy little flowers.
