I have gotten gifts at good prices. I have made some things,now. I have put up a few decorations, but something is missing; where is the joy. What happened to the reason we celebrate Christmas? I do not feel obligated to buy gifts or celebrate in an expensive way, I like to give gifts to people who I love that I could not give, without them feeling guilty,. I am shy, and feel this is the one time of year that I can give, because I do not feel they have to give me anything, they do that all year round. I always liked to make my gifts, but can not do that this year. But, tradition seems to have gone out the window. Family, friends together; holiday music, cooking and baking. I miss it all. As I am sure a lot of you do. Most of all I miss being out shopping (not spending money, necessarily) just seeing the sights of holiday decorations, happy faces, etc. We used to all go to church as a family on Christmas morning, but most of the family is either deceased or far away. And, I feel so obvious in a wheel chair, and do not want the people I meet to feel pity. I don't; someday they will figure this out and I will go on with my life, I just want that Christmas spirit back. What about you? I do enjoy the Holiday Movies, but what else can we do to get the spirit?
