It’s finally Christmas and all of the excited waiting is over. I would like to take a break in the middle of the warming Christmas lights and remember that there are those that are out in the cold, those that are suffering and those that are lonely.
My thoughts go first and foremost to the families of the children in Connecticut that lost their lives in one of the most brutal and pointless events the world has seen. A lot of Christmas presents were probably already purchased, but there won’t be any happy children’s faces to open them on Christmas day.
Christmas is a time for companionship but is also a time when loneliness is worse than ever for those that don’t have anyone to celebrate with.
I know how it felt, the Christmas after my mother died in 2008 – that awful feeling of complete sorrow, emptiness and loneliness. I shut out Christmas for several years after, and pretended that it was a normal holiday like any other. This year however is the first time I’m really starting to get the Christmas spirit back again, thanks by and large to my b/f Jon who has given me back the happy feeling of Christmas.
Inredningsvis lights a candle today for all those people that don’t have anyone else to celebrate Xmas with, and sends love out to every frozen, lonely soul.
To all my wonderful followers I wish you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS, with lots of kisses under the mistletoe :)
