We usually spend the holidays with my parents, either we go to Saskatchewan or they come here. I have spent maybe four or five Christmases in my entire life without my parents (and I'm 46 -- I've had a lot of Christmases!).
Celebrating with Mom and Dad one of the years they came here.
The year we were traveling over Christmas so we did
a new tradition of a book tree rather than a real Christmas tree.
It was awesome!
*I have friends who have lost parents recently so I don't take for granted that mine are still around.
My heart is just finding a bit harder.
So that's what's on my holiday wish list -- to enjoy (and maybe, even love) this opportunity to make room for new traditions and experiences. And maybe to gain a bit of maturity through it too :)
Once again I've linked up with Kimberly, Andi, Tamara, and Tanya for #AMonthofFaves.
