I'm really thankful that I'll be spending Easter with my friends today. I am grateful and honored to be invited each year. Honored may sound like an odd word to describe it, but I am. I'm very lucky.
When I write about the holidays here, I feel a bit odd. I know there may be people reading here who are going to have a terrible time today. -On any holiday. I want to say "Happy [insert appropriate holiday here!]" to them (to you!) because it's possible that nobody else will. I also don't want to cause anyone to feel worse by talking about what a great day I had or am about to have when they might be sitting home alone, or have to work, or be going through anything else that makes the fun time others are having at the holidays seem like an unusually cruel reminder to them of "what kind of day they're not having."
Oversensitive of me? Maybe. But I was in that position for many years. And although I've been blessed with great holidays for over 10 years now, I never forget. And I'm never unaware of how immensely lucky I am to have really wonderful holidays now (Even the little ones... and even those I spend alone.)
To everyone who is going to have a fun time today: I'm sorry if this brought you down! Lol!
To everyone who will have a "tense" holiday today: Find the humor and make fun of it often (and blog about it so I can read!)
To everyone who is spending the day alone and is ok with that: I hope you have a restful, peaceful, productive day.
To everyone who is sad today, you are in my thoughts. Honestly. Tomorrow will be easier.
