Christmas this year was hard. I couldn’t stop thinking about my dad. He was alive this time last year… Hmm…
His passing is becoming a reality and I have accepted my fate. I’ve avoided saying “Merry Christmas” because it hurts in ways that I can’t explain, and it reopens old wounds.
So, if you tried to reach me on the 25th of December, I apologise for not responding as expected. I wasn’t comfortable using any phrase that starts with “Merry”.
Today, I’m starting afresh and I’m wrapping up the memories of my parents in a special part of my heart, and I celebrate them in a new way – with gratitude.
I’m thankful that I have a grandma, grandpa, and I’m grateful for my uncles, aunties, cousins, siblings, and friends.
I hope you’re having a good time with your family these holidays.
Thanks for stopping by.
