not quite like christmas
this year, even though the christmas season is longer, it doesn’t feel as much like christmas as some years in the past. i’m not struggling with depression, being upset about anything or feeling like being a scrooge, it just feels different this year. like christmas will be over soon and that will be good. i don’t like feeling that way.
there is nothing different i don’t think. i’m still listening to christmas music ’round the clock. it’s been snowing and so it looks like christmas. we’ve been reading our christmas cards, although we haven’t gotten to getting our own out yet.
so i don’t know what the difference is, but it’s just felling not quite like christmas yet. i hope it will soon because i always enjoy the feel of the season and everything that makes it special. being busy might hold some of the blame, but not all.
maybe dawn and i need to sit down and figure out what to do for christmas this year, who to get together with and maybe even what we can do to serve others this year. since we don’t have family here, it’s very possible we could volunteer on christmas eve or day to serve others and be a blessings. i think that would be cool.
