I hate to join in on the rushing of the holidays, but the fact is that they are very much on people’s minds. Should we try a new recipe or stick with the traditional dishes? Who’s house are we going to and do we really need to invite obnoxious Uncle Joe? Well, they never really say that, but they are thinking it!
And that has me thinking about the folks who are facing their first year of holidays without a loved one. The same questions arise, but with a different spin: Do we talk about him or her? Shouldn’t we just ignore the big dinner this year? I’m sure mom/dad/sister/aunt/uncle/grandparent would rather we just forget the holidays and go away, right?
We’ll have the opportunity to explore these questions and find some answers on a FREE teleseminar, 5 Steps to Holiday Survival, this Thursday evening. I’m the guest speaker on the call hosted by the National Association of Baby Boomer Women. and you can get call-in details and read a little more about me at http://www.nabbw.com/blog/2010/11/baby-boomer-woman-ann-leach/
