I know a couple of people who will will be missing a loved one this Christmas. My thoughts go out to them. I have lost a few friends this year, too, and it colors the season a little differently this time around.
Some thoughts as we enter the holiday season:
It's important to remember that not everyone is surrounded by large wonderful families. Some of us have problems during the holidays and are overcome with great sadness when we remember loved ones who are not with us. And many people have no one to spend these times with, and are besieged by loneliness. We all need caring, loving thoughts right now. I ask my friends, wherever you might be, to give a moment of support to all those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just need to know that someone cares.
Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune.
Be grateful! Merry Christmas!
