So, I know that holidays are coming up QUICK. There's so many birthdays, special dates, and family days around this time of the year. I love spending time with my family and whatnot.

Over this past year and a half, I've lost many people close to me. Thinking about the holidays brings to my attention that there are people who won't be as joyous as the next. Mothers who have lost their children, grandmothers who are resting with God now, and even fathers who have passed on. It makes me so sad to think about.

I recently lost my cousin. September 11, 2009 wasn't only a 9/11 terrorist attack "anniversary", if you will, it was also the day my cousin got taken off life support. His birthday was just a few days after that. We went through the first birthday without him, the first halloween, and now it's the first Thanksgiving and Christmas, ect? It hurts, but I know that he's in a better place. I know I will be thankful for life and my families lives this year, now more than ever. I wake up everyday praising God that he opened my eyes again today.

I didn't mean for this post to turn into something religious, but this is how I'm feeling. If anybody reads my posts, don't think of me trying to be religious, think about the people who have lost people and have to keep enduring life without the people they love.
