Today, I am following in the footsteps of a good friend of mine. He wrote this morning that he has never felt more Christmas-y.
I have been in the dumps this year as has the majority of my family. If you've been following my blog, you'll know why. Last week, we lost my grandfather and it has been hard. Yet, for me, it has been more than just his passing.
Essentially, my entire family watched a family member die. You can't put it any other way. Collectively, we all watched him go from a reasonably healthy man (he was over 90, so, there are health issues regardless) to someone who wasn't awake for most of the day.
