I feel like so many people in my life are struggling with sadness this holiday. A friend lost her husband this year, another lost her mother this week, still another lost her stepson, all of them aching with grief. My young Namesake is displaced and homeless, my old friend is being treated badly by his only child. So much sadness at such a joyous time of celebration. My answer to it all? Grab the simple pleasures while you can, enjoy every minute. And hold one another tightly.
