As a kid, Christmas was the holiday of choice. As a young adult I loved the family time of Thanksgiving. As an older adult July 4th filled me with an immense pride in my country and all it stood for. New Year's Eve became special when my late husband and I got married in 1985. So many holidays, so many traditions, so many things have come and gone.
So I'd have to decline today's prompt to chose favorite holiday. I'm much wiser and older now. I've lost two husbands (one and ex) to cancer. I've lost too many friends and loved ones and I've watched too many friends do the same.
My favorite holiday is any and every day...savor it to the fullest. You never know what tomorrow will bring. Enjoy your old traditions, make new ones, celebrate in your own special way. But always remember this....
"The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present." ~ Alice Morse Earle
