Merry Christmas?

I haven't have any Christmas spirit this year, I don't understand why? It could be the weather being so warm? Unbelievable for this time of the year. Last year, it was freezing cold and snowing since October and this year we have none of this. Or, I am missing my beloved mum and brother? I know we don't celebrate Christmas with them but to me, Christmas is the time when you have family gets together and this year, they are not here to ask how is my Christmas. Also, I am missing our good friend Jim who passed away in June, he was such a wonderful man that loved his shelties very much. He helped us a lot around the house, he converted our garage into a spare room and he always look after our shelties when we have to leave them. He has a great sense of humour.

I put up the Christmas Tree three weeks ago, Colin always like his Christmas Tree but I haven't done much decoration on it like I used to do every year. And, I haven't take a group photo of the shelties in front of the Tree or dress them up with Christmas theme. I am just not in the mood of celebration. Everytime I saw a friend posting a beautiful Christmas photo on the facebook, I wanted to do so to my shelties but I soon asked myself, mum and Patrick and Jim are not there to see it, so what's the point? Sorry friends, I hope you understand why there is no The KNIGHTs Shelties Christmas photo this year.

Here are some normal/daily photos of The KNIGHTs Shelteis ...

Don't feel bad. I don't have any Christmas spirit either. I didn't even do Christmas cards this year. That's the first time in over 20 years I haven't sent a card. My husband lost his job in June and hasnt found another one. Ugh! I never thought it would take this long for him to find another job.
Not having family around to talk about things at Christmas is very very hard. I hope it gets easier for you.

This can be a very difficult time for people, especially when you have suffered from so much loss.

I hope you have a relaxing, peaceful holiday, and I'm sure your furry family will lift your spirits a bit.

you are not alone Lian. I think so many of us are feeling that way this year. I haven't even put up any decorations at all!

We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to have the Christmas spirit but it is ok not to. There are no rules saying you have to send cards, decorate, be merry. I am very lucky to have my family around me and I wish you had that luxury too. But know that all over the world (especially here in OH) friends love you and wish you peace this holiday season.

It's my first Christmas away from home, so I know how you feel.

I hope that as Christmas nears you are able to reflect on the good times and wonderful year that you and your family had in 2011.

You can't help the way you are feeling. Your friends understand and are always here. Love the pic of Seagull :)
