Advent 2015, December 23 Part II
I have struggled with Christmas in a similar way. I find only by mindful planning and controlling its process can I survive it. I also find this blog helpful.
Good news, I think. We took our little dog to the shelter because we didn't feel that we could take care of him any longer. Long story. The shelter says he has been adopted or rescued. I am very happy. That is a good enough present for me.
