Thanks for your honesty and openness about the holidays, Lisa. I am 50 now and the holidays are tough for me. I grew up with Christmas, and have had mixed feelings and experiences during past Christmases. I spent my 40s letting many dreams go. My son has nonverbal autism, and both he and my husband don't care about the holidays. These times have become bitter and sad for me. Now, though, I am bringing back in some of the things I miss from the older times- the tree, the music, maybe even the laughter. It is for all of us too because a happier mommy is a way better person to be around!
