Ugh. Right after the season of thanksgiving I started feeling depressed. I think I have my annual holiday blues. :( I know there are so many things to be grateful for, but so many things have been depressing me lately. So that's my update: I'm depressed. I'm worried about some things at work. I'm disappointed that I probably won't get to visit my mom's hometown (General Santos City) over the holidays. (I was so looking forward to spending Christmas with my grandmother, older brothers, and cousins! I was looking forward to being far away from Metro Manila.) And lately I haven't been getting enough time for FUN.

Hopefully some of your friends and family can come bring some holiday cheer to you!
Hope your Christmas spirit returns quickly!

Isn't this a frustrating season? There is so much good and cheer, but it's so easy to feel like you are only on the outside looking in. I sympathize. Courage and faith Tarie. Make time for fun and be prepared to find the fun in unexpected ways and places. Here, take some more (((hugs))) I hope you can turn things around and find yourself surrounded by family, friends and joy.

Kerrie - That's exactly what I need: some holiday cheer! I also hope my Christmas spirit returns quickly.

Natalie - I have been so down lately that I don't even feel like putting up my little Christmas tree. Thank you so much for all of the hugs. :)

Thanksgiving in the Phillipines? Can you explain please!?

Hi, Belledi! The Philippines doesn't celebrate American Thanksgiving, but *I* do because I grew up in the US. :D
