Halloween is almost here and we have a bushel basket full of candy, but just haven't taken the time to decorate for Halloween like I've always done in the past.
It seems like I just want to get through Halloween so I can get into Christmas.
Yeah, I'll say it...
I'm not feeling Halloween this year!
So I thought I'd put up some photos of "Halloweens Past" so you wouldn't think I'm a complete grump.
These pictures are all from other years when the Halloween spirit was with me.
I know my Halloween spirit will come back...just not this year.
This year I'll breathe a sigh of relief on November 1st and make a bee-line for Christmas. I'd rather be Merry than Scary this year!
Maybe it's because 2018 has been a hard year for us...too many losses. The future looks bright, but the recent past has taken a toll.
This year I'm not going to black out my teeth or put on a costume, but I will wear this T-Shirt, give out candy, and admire all the little ones who come to the door.
Then on November 1st, fall and Halloween are gone and I hope my mood brightens. I really can't wait for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and 2019 to get here.
I've even picked my "word" for 2019... it's JOY. I hope to find all the joy in 2019 that we missed out on in 2018, and I hope you do too.
Thanks for dropping by!
(And Happy Halloween To You)
