'Tis the Season


Twinkle here. I've been out of the loop on the Lost blogs only dashing in once in a while to get news about the upcoming season and the writer's strike. I'd love to get caught up with you. What have you been up to this year and where are you now?

What are you gearing up for? Hanukkah? Christmas? Kwanzaa? New Year? Festivus? The return of Lost?

Whatever you're looking forward to, this seems to be the season of expectation. We often turn introspective, contemplating the things that mean the most to us. This season also reminds many of us about what we have lost. Whether this season is happy or sad for you, what gives you hope?

I'll start. :-) Thanks for asking about me, Capcom. Hello! And to Maven, Scoutpost, and Mellissa_Lossa too. You all have been really holding down the fort at TLC, huh?

This year has definitely had it's ups and downs. Not sure how it's going to turn out yet. For Christmas, we're headed on a big cross country drive to visit family with the Balloon Fairy (3 in January) and the Big Jumper (now 5 1/2). I got a big, "what the heck am I doing?" lump in my throat when kindergarten started and we didn't send him to school. Guess we're officially homeschooling now. Most days it really works well.

House renovations are also underway. If I thought Decembers were usually crazy I had no idea until we added painting and repairing our house to it.

All in all though, life's been normal. It's funny how just normal can still wear you down sometimes. My daughter's birthday this January marks the fourth year since my dad passed away from cancer. The grief has hit me the hardest this year. (Why is there a time delay? Am I experiencing the Lost island effect?)

"Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope..." It may sound cheesy but I've been spending a lot of time this year trying to cultivate gratitude in my heart and making sure I spend a brief time every day in quiet. We've also been seeking ways to give back more. We started helping out occasionally at a thrift store/food pantry and are sponsoring a kid from another country. I don't want my kids to take for granted what they have (which of course they do). At least it's definitely helping me to keep my perspective.

So that's what we've been doing. We're looking forward to a lot of things with travel, the holidays, and birthdays. Personally I can't wait to see people open the gifts we've gotten them! One thing that gives me hope is that there's always someone somewhere who grasps at least a little bit of what we're going through. Everybody has a story. And that means we are not alone.

Thanks for the new post, Twinkle. It is good to hear from you.

Grief is like that; it ebbs and flows, especially as it nears the time of the anniversary of the death of a loved one. My mom died on my 15th wedding anniversary, so I know how conflicted it can be to celebrate and commemorate together. And sometimes the wave of grief is so strong...I miss her, and dad, so much at times I can't bear it. Most of the time it's just a dull ache; it *has* been 10 years...

And life goes on. Glad to see you pressing on with homeschooling and renovating (are you nuts? lol) Many blessings and prayers for traveling mercies as you trek across this land. Have a wonderful Christmas.

Thanks for sharing your story.

Good to hear news from and about you Twinkle. :-) That's a good verse too. Good luck on the home schooling!

Ditto what you said Amused.

Thanks! Yes, I am nuts! So what have you all been up to? Which holidays are you celebrating? Have you heard anymore about Lost being delayed and not shown in February after all?

Hey, Maven, if you check over here, how does your family celebrate Hanukkah? Does it start tomorrow or did it start today? I love the candles and the story (from just the little I've heard about it). Have a great week!
