Post Holiday Blues and Remembering Our Loved Ones

Phew! I'm so glad the Christmas season is over. I always love the start of a new year. I've been really missing a few of my loved ones that have passed on. I'm not trying to be morbid. There is just something about the start of a fresh year that makes me remember the people that are no longer with us. It makes me grateful that I am lucky enough to enjoy another year. It makes me cherish the precious memories of the time I had with these special people. There are three people that I really miss. Maybe there is internet access in the next world and they can see this? :)

Here are my Grandma and Grandpa. My Grandma was feisty and adorable. My Grandpa was so full of love! This picture was taken during WWII. They both lived long, full lives.

This is my brother-in-law. He was Mr Eighties!! He introduced me to so many cool bands that I would have never heard of on my own. He passed away in his early thirties after a freak accident.
I would love to hear about the people my lovely readers are remembering as we start a new year.

Beautiful nails as always :) A lot of loved ones are gone, but the one I think of most often is surely my Mom. This was our seventh Christmas without her, and the holidays have never been the same since we lost her. She made them they seem like more of a chore!

Wow! Your Grandma certainly does look feisty and fun. Thanks for sharing.

This is so thoughtful of you. I haven't really lost anyone that was very close to me. I never knew my grandfathers and both grandmothers died when I was really young, so I can't really remember them.
I do often think about the persons I lost in different ways (going to different school, old lovers...friends). It doesn't make me very sad though. I believe that anyone has it's own purpose on the earth. =)

BTW: I love your nails. Blue/teal suits you very well.

Great post :) Holidays always make me think of my Grampy and Dada. I'm also mouring the loss of my beloved cat,who died at the tender age of 18,as well as my Auntie Diane, and my cousin Troy who passed away when he was 17.

P.S. That is a lovely picture of your grandparents!

I have a very difficult time with December. I lost my mom just before Christmas 20 years ago this year...and it's like a day hasn't passed. I have a hard time enjoying the holiday...but I do what I can. I have a son who keeps me focused and makes me remember why I carry on. :)

Felix wants you to check out my nail art!!
