Season of Change

This is the first Christmas that my mom isn’t at home. We never really celebrated Christmas, beyond me giving her presents, but it still feels strange. I miss her so much.

This holiday season has been more difficult than most. I am dealing with the loss of the version of my mom that I grew up with and trying to navigate this new chapter in our relationship. I am moving out of my childhood home and the neighborhood I grew up in. In a lot of ways, my identity is also changing and evolving. I am excited for what’s to come, but I am dealing with a lot of change. I am just trying to make it from one day to the next and if nothing else, I’d say that I’m doing a fairly decent job of doing that.
