Response to Paper Roses (Original post)

17. you certainly weren't the only one with these feelings

last week i asked my daughter: "how about if we put off christmas until it feels like christmas?"

even she wasn't feeling in the mood/spirit/whatever

depressed for over 2 years since i lost my mom--this is the third year with a tabletop tree--put up for my daughter's benefit. the ornaments stayed in their boxes in the garage as they have for the past three xmases. the tree has lights. that's enough.

it's terribly hard to muster up that spark that was once there. wonder if it will ever come back. then again, i don't really care--it doesn't matter anymore.
