I know it’s only September, well almost October. The holidays both Jewish and regular are all around me. The only issue is that my husband is once again in a distant land serving our country. Would I change this?
NO! I love David, I love everything, well almost everything about him. His putting service to our country ahead of himself is part of what I love about him. I know some of you just don’t believe me, but there’s something very special about the men and women who wear the uniform. No, I won’t bore you with everything that makes them so special, but let’s just say they are usually some of the best people you will ever meet.
So what’s a person alone on all of the upcoming holidays to do?
- I could sit around and mope
- I could hang out with friends
- I could write
I could mope, you don’t know me very well do you. This just isn’t my style.
I’d love to hang out with friends, but as much as I’d love to I can’t. These same wheels that will have me running you over on a downhill also mean that I’m unlikely to come to your house for a visit. Yes, I’ve had offers to help me up the stairs, and that’s fine for a short visit, but what about when nature calls. I can guarantee I won’t fit through that door, so I tend not to go to my friends houses, though that would be awesome if I could.
I could write, yes I’m still writing. You never know I might just do that.
While I can’t tell you exactly where I’ll be on the holidays I can tell you that having to spend them apart once in awhile makes them all the more special when we are all together. So I’d like to take this time to remind everyone not to take the precious time with your friends and family for granted.
