The holidays are a time of celebration.
But it is also the time that hurts…
For not everybody is with their family.
For some may have lost someone this year.
Someone may be alone.
Someone is learning to live without someone.
Someone’s family is incomplete today.
Someone’s landscape of life has changed.
But the holidays are also a time for hope.
Of happiness, prosperity and peace
For we are all so brave,
Through our struggles and fears.
Another year is coming.
I hope this year that awaits you,
Is better than the year that was.
Merry Christmas to you,
And to everyone you care for.
