I Spy Something Festive

by Sherry Riter in Depression,Holiday

This holiday season has not been easy for many who are trying to make it during hard economic times.

Are you one of those people who now have the “holiday blues”? It’s not just a saying – it is a real condition that happens to millions of people each year.

If you suffer from this sadness, I found a great article to help called Coping With Depression During the Holidays When Sadness Clashes With Celebration” at WebMD.

I hope that everyone will not put undue pressure on themselves during this holiday season and will just enjoy family and friends in the attitude of thankfulness.

In memory of all the happy Christmas’ I’ve had, especially when my baby was truly a baby, I bring you festive pictures and some of my favorite songs – beginning with, I think, one of the most beautiful…The Snowman.

I have a lightbox to help with the winter blues… ironically, it emits a blue light!

Thanks for posting all the Christmas goodies! I especially love the Walking in The Air song =)

Okay, I watched the "Walking in the air" video and cried the entire time…sobbed really. Remembering watching it with you and Evan, Alyssa and Brittany, all 5 of us. I still miss those times, the best time of my life.
