this day

As you wake this Christmas morning, you may feel alone lying in your bed. You may feel far from your beloved that you've lost. You may cry and feel sorry for yourself. You may watch your children open their presents as tears roll down your cheeks.
But know that we are not alone. We are all facing this together. Your loved ones are with you, if in spirit, memory or in your children, whatever you may believe.
I know that, for me, knowing that you are experiencing a similar morning is enough to make me not feel so sorry for myself. I am not really alone. You know. You understand. You are facing the same day as me.
Try to find the light and joy in the day. Be thankful for all that we do still have left. Find joy in remembering all that we have had and the memories that we keep so close to our hearts. Remember to make new joyous memories.
I am thinking of you all today. Merry Christmas!!!!!


  1. This message has just lifted my mood, it is boxing day morning and I am just about to wake the children. When opened my eyes this morning I really felt that I could barely face another day. It is nearly 15 months since I lost my husband in a road accident, the pain and the missing him seems almost unbearable right now. Last year at this time we were in such a state of shock we seemed to function on some level more efficiently. This time around Christmas has been quite an ordeal.
    Thank you for making me feel less alone. x
