Slowly thee, write me if you want to. It is good to know that someone is caring and paying attention to you. Maybe you can talk to that person at another time when there are less customers, or something.

I remember when I had my Wedding Cat (got right after marriage) die, (1977-1993), I took her last photos to a fox photo where I knew the woman working there from years of old photos, even though it was not close to home. It was a very challenging month, with an accident that totaled my car and a husband in the hospital with kidney stones and the cat was dead when he came home from the hospital. But still, such a small thing as sharing this with a photo processor helped. (I know. we don't DO that any more with pictures much).

When I was not working I found that going to my church every week and playing music there gave me An Anchor, a place to go and be. Hopefully you can find something to attend, whatever your belief, I don't mean necessarily a religious activity. I also have a crochet group that meets (sort of ) weekly (I have no idea if they met the day after Xmas but I doubt it, I was with a friend who needed help).

Anyway, keep sharing. My holiday was pretty much defined by the friend's husband who had a heart attack, but I will also call it "the Jacket Christmas".
