Holiday Quote by Pamela Ribon

Family Holiday Picture
"Having a holiday weekend without a family member felt like putting on a sweater that had an extra arm."
- Pamela Ribon
This quote is particularly inspiring because I love the way she makes you understand how it feels to have a holiday weekend without a family member.
A sweater with an extra arm feels weird because you know something is not right. It is the same as having a holiday without a family member.
As much as we all gripe and groan around the holidays about having to pack up and visit family, it is always the most enjoyable time of the season. It is a tradition for many to spend extra time with family around holidays, and it is a time to just express how much you love one another.
I'm that person who would rather stay home when everyone else was out visiting. This quote has inspired me to remain positive around the holidays, and remember that we are visiting each other not just because it is tradition, but because we want to show our love for each other.
If anything, this quote reminds me that holidays are a time for family.
