A favor please . . .

At this time of year many of us are involved with the joy of the season, the gift of friends and friendship, the even-more-golden gift of family, our parents-brothers-sisters-aunts-uncles-cousins-second cousins, and so on.

There are those gentle people out there that, for some reason, do not find this time of year joyous.  They feel more hurt than joy; more tears than laughter, more pain than anything else; they have no sweet soothing thoughts of Christmas - that for whatever reason they don't feel as jolly as we do, please try to understand.  These are graceful people who have lost the joy of the season - they hurt.

For all the graces this season of the year provides, I pray for those who just feel bad and hope that sometime soon, they find a way to live, love and be happy  - perhaps it takes a friend to understand.

Blessings on you all!
