This time of year it is sometimes hard to be merry. There is a lot of extra stress, and sometimes the knowledge of those who go without is more painful at this time than at others. It is also a time for remembering those we've lost. I find that focusing on the things I love about the holidays helps. What are the things you like best about the holidays? Visiting loved ones, wrapping and decorating, seeing the lights, hearing the music, watching holiday specials and movies? What is your 'favorite' part of the holidays?
