Life is funny. You don’t really know what you’ve got until you lose it. I would give anything if I could spend one more year with the man that I lost. He was a man to be admired. He fulfilled every wish, every dream, every need that a person could have.
Now, I have friends who are so special. They have invited me to celebrate Christmas with them ever since I lost my husband three years ago. We exchange gifts, but the best gift is their friendship.
I was feeling sorry for myself, in anticipation of Christmas this year. I thought I would spend it alone. So I called my friends in plenty of time to guilt them into inviting me. Their reaction was, “We are so sorry that we didn’t call earlier. We just assumed that you would be here.”
I will enjoy Christmas food, drinks and fun along with my friends. It’s now formally a tradition. It is so nice to be a part of something, so nice to be included. I still have great memories of Christmases past, but I have more to look forward to.
