Sad  It wasn't all bad
Our Chicken Soup at Christmas book is out and they are already gathering stories for next year. We wrote one. It was about my sister and I wen we were little. It focused on the positives of getting ready for the holiday and the excitement of a child.

When we edited it one last time prior to sending it off we actually cried. We sent copies to T and PDoc and said "it wasn't always bad." Sadly that same Christmas turned into a very dark time but those vignettes of family times where we were a real family do exist. It is like we could write two different stories and nobody would recognize that it was the same family.

That is very well put--It is like we could write two different stories and nobody would recognize that it was the same family.
This is how we feel also..............I am glad you have your writing and the happy memories.
