Loss During the Holidays

This has been an exceptionally hard year for my friends and family. We’ve had lots of ups and downs. Stress from my sick baby girl who was ill for 1/2 the year before they ended up diagnosing her with PFAPA and removed her tonsils. Then I had surgery, followed by the loss of my grandfather. Then 2 of my friends husbands have been battling cancer. Sadly the week before Christmas, Sean passed away in his sleep after a 2 1/2 year battle. And lastly, 2 days before Christmas I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks. Yeah, talk about an emotional roller coaster!

I’ve never had a holiday filled with so much sadness and loss. Christmas is my favorite holiday and I never felt the spirit this year. Luckily, Ella reminded me every day what the holidays are about and was able to keep me going. Children are such inspirations and I feel so blessed to have her in my life. 🙂

It’s been hard to focus on writing this year and I so don’t want to quit Mkokopelli. I’ve learned so much this year, I want to share as much as I can! My hours were cut at Franklin Goose, so I will now have more downtime to focus on writing and spreading the message of great eco-friendly companies with my loyal readers who I have felt like I’ve abandoned. And in my heart, I haven’t! I so miss you guys!!!! I hope everyone had a much more joyous holiday! And I’m really here to stay this time.
