5 Ways to Enjoy the Holidays

Finding Joy in the Holidays despite the trials that may come with them.

Terra Cooper December 06, 2014

The holiday season is a time for family, love and laughter. But often times the holiday season may not be a time of joy.  It may be a time where you remember loved ones lost, a painful annual memory, or you are away from your family or support system. It may be a time that it feels like “hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth, good will, to men.”

Those that are in the adoption world may also have many memories that are triggered by this holiday season. Many may not be in contact with their birth or adoptive families. Around this time of year, we long to be with our loved ones, and if that is not possible, it can be a very lonely time.

I hope that some of these ideas can bring happiness and joy to your holiday season.
