A Christmas Angel


The few days that preceded Christmas 2009 my family was undergoing the tragic loss of our sweet little cousin.

While I did continue to Elf through the upsetting news, I didn’t have the heart to post about my adventures.  It felt silly to be writing about how to cope through the holidays while unemployed when my family was coping with the loss of our dear 15-year-old Kristin. A death like this puts everything else into perspective.

What I did realize was that no matter what you are dealing with in life, family, friends, and love are all you need to get by.

Kristin would have gotten a kick out of my stories of being an Elf – I know she would have smiled and laughed at my tales of little kids, crazy parents, and conversations with Santa.

I will update soon with some final thoughts on this month-long adventure as Zippy The Elf.

Love, actually, is all around

Hug your loved ones close … you never know.
