Feelings during the season

This time of year always comes with various feelings.....

Feelings of joy when you see the look on your kids faces.

Feelings of sadness when you think of those who are gone.

Feelings of  hopefulness when you help those in need.

Feelings of love when you see family.

Feelings of accomplishment, or lack there of, depending on how the year went.

Feelings of anxiousness as you prepare for the holidays.

Sometimes even feelings of anger as you deal with those who are (insert whatever here). *uncooperative, ungrateful, selfish, uncaring, etc.*

I, myself, find a roller coaster of these emotions. Sometimes daily! I try to prepare myself for anything and everything that the season can bring but some things you are just not able to prep for. Handling the situation is half the battle. I have a hard time with that part of feelings. Handling is hard! I tend to bottle things up, which is never a good thing. I like to vent to Gary, even if he has no idea what I am talking about. I cry. Some days that is all you need, a good cry!

How do you feel during this season? Is there a specific way you handle situations or feelings?


  1. All those feelings ring true. I'm a roll-with-the-punches kind of person most of the time. I don't stress much and we've been lucky to have family that doesn't demand but respects our decisions. The season is so busy and flies by so fast I don't give much thought to it and before I know it, it's all over and I'm exhausted! I tell my husband stuff too and he never knows what to say lol.

  2. I have so many feelings! It is hard to keep them straight. One minute I am happy- the next a blubbering mess! I can so relate!

  3. Hang in there girlfriend, it is a hard job being a mom and trying to keep it all together, especially during the holidays. My feelings this holiday season are not as happy as they have been in years past. We will get through this!

  4. Life is definitely hard. You know I tend to keep things bottled up and handle everything myself. I'm really hoping this Christmas is a great one and 2013 is a much better year!

  5. Hi there, followed you over here from It's the Little things. Love your blog, new follower!

    This holiday I'm having a hard time. We have friends who lost their 8 year old suddenly and tragically on Saturday. So this year, my feelings are sadness. However, my own children are 5 and 3 and they have no idea what has gone on, so it's up to me to be sure to keep Christmas alive for them and to make it amazing, no matter how sad I am...

    1. Hi, thanks for following! I am following back and cannot wait to read your adventures.

      So very sorry to hear of the loss of such a young person. Tragedy like that is hard to over come.
