It's the Holidays, So How Come I Am Not Happy?

I will be sad this holiday season. This year's blessings didn't come wrapped with the happiness ribbon. My mother is still here and I can tell her I love her face to face, but her condition worsens. I have a wonderful family, but haven't slept in months. The holidays may not be filled with cheer, but this year I will be filled with something greater. I will know that God is right beside me whether I am happy, sad or some place in between.
