    Too much going on for me to get in the spirit of Christmas. I wouldn't care if I could just bypass it this year.

    2016 definitely has been a challenging year for many and overall not a great morale year, I think. Because of that, I am trying to focus much on the good that we see around and the importance of having family, friends, a wonderful and healthy bulldog, and trying to do more good in the world. Less focus on material possessions and more on trying to donate to good causes because it makes me feel better for much longer.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    Was the worst and best year I've had combined. To The loss of my dog to the gaining of 2 new family members. I'm looking forward to see what 2017 has to offer.

    Holidays have been tough for many years for my family, but decorating and focusing on the pups, donating to worthy causes and keeping my circle small and tight really helps get through it

    Scrooge has nothing on me. I don't even want to decorate this year. My girls used to always help me. Bill doesn't do any decorating. With my kids in Dallas and us up here in Michigan, I just can't see doing it any more. I decorated the last few years because my mother spends Christmas with us. But she made it clear she didn't want to be a part of the preparations this year. So screw it. we have a new grandchild coming in a few weeks. That and my daughter's graduation will be the celebrations this year. I am ready for January.

    We haven't decorated in years, just doesn't seem the same since the skin kids are gone.

    We never know what the other person is going through or what their journey has been. Many people struggle with stress, illness, financial or relationship problems, but hopefully next year brings us all better things. All we can do is count the blessings we do have, be kind and loving to each other and to everyone, not just to family and friends, and keep our families and friends close, and just be there for everyone, even if it just to listen, give a shoulder to cry on, hug someone who needs one, or just a kind word or a warm smile. You never know what one small gesture or kind word, can do to brighten or make a difference in some else's life.
