Jolly

I’m done decorating the house except for my dad’s bedroom. It’s hard to be in his bedroom looking at his belonging also I can smell him. On Friday, my sibling came to the house for his monthly rosary. I can’t believe it’s been a month since he passed. I’m trying to be strong for my family, especially for my grandkids.

Last night, we took the grandkids to the Christmas lightning at the park. They have a Christmas display from different small business around the park and the drive become a fun one. The Christmas lights and the music it makes you feel right into the season. Then we ride around the town to check the decorations and we end the night with a cup of hot cocoa cover in marshmallows.

In two weeks Christmas will be here and for most of the people the holiday season will be over. I’m trying to hide my sadness and my sorrow all for the joy of my family. They deserved a happy Christmas.

I realized our life can be gone in a second for that reason lets the jolly Christmas be in our heart. Let’s enjoy every minute with our love ones. You never know it could be the last one.

Happy Thanksgiving

Today is one of the most important day of the year it’s the beginning of the holidays. The house is quiet and I’m already have the turkey in the oven. We will have thanksgiving lunch, since my daughter in law has to work. The Thanksgiving dinner reunion for the rest of the family will be tonight at my nephew’s home.

This was my dad’s favorite holiday and it’s been 12 days since he passed. I can’t stop crying when I look at his bedroom and today it will be a tough one. I don’t want the kids to notice I’m getting depressed all over again. They are expecting to see a few decorations and to listen to my Christmas songs.

I hope I can get the strength to at least have something done for them. I know in my heart; my dad would like for me to move on. However, I miss him and my heart feels sadness.

To the ones who celebrated this holiday, Happy Thanksgiving and cherish every moment.

Recite

Every day as soon as I put my feet on the floor I recite my gratitude’s. I recite “I am truly grateful for _______ because______” finishing with a thank you. I do this every morning since I bought the book “Magic from Rhonda Byrne”. Also, when I go for my walks or driving in my car I love reciting my blessings. It makes me feel appreciated it for the little things I have.

I have been teaching my granddaughters to be grateful and they sound adorable when they recite their gratitude. One of them was grateful for having an ice cream cone and the other was grateful for receiving a toy.

When I feel depressed, it gets a little more difficult because my head begins to spin and I can’t find the right words. However, I keep reciting my gratitude’s until I begin to feel better.

Daily Prompt: Recite

Savor

This is a beautiful Sunday. I’m enjoying my garden, relaxing in my swing meanwhile the girls are having fun in the pool. My husband is getting ready the BBQ and I’m ready to savor some delicious food. We have to embrace our days, savor every minute because we will never know how long will last.

Caper

So far, I’ve been enjoying my summer vacation. My grandkids are spending their days capering around the house. They’re enjoying their time together. Before the girls have to go back to their home in Arizona they want me to teach them how to dance. They have been begging since they arrived and to my surprise they want to learn Latino dances as Salsa and Merengue. I’m a pretty good dancer however, it has been too long since I shake this body.

My girls tell me I still have the moves. They are such a sweetheart. We have been dancing all weekend if I can call it dancing. Also, I’m taking advantage and its helping me losing weight. My house is full of laughter and I’m loving every minute.

Gone

What a perfect prompt for today my girls just left an hour ago, flying back to Arizona. They supposed to fly yesterday, but then we got another winter storm along with ten inches of snow. If it keeps snowing like this, they would not be a place to dump the snow.  In every corner, you can see a huge pile of snow the roads are getting narrow and impossible to drive. The ten days the girls spend in North Dakota they play in the snow almost every day. Those two loves snow, wearing coats, hats, and mittens. Before they left, they kissed me and say it’s been the best Christmas ever.  They always make me smile. In a few hours, they would in their own beds and I am missing them already.  However, we are making plans for the spring and that’s not too far away.
