We all have times when we feel down, left out, perhaps even not part of the family. All these emotions are honest and natural. We cannot be up 100% of the time. Holidays are especially hard on those who have lost a loved one. It is at these times I recommend you be alone if need be. Please remember there are people around you who respect your wishes and care and would always welcome you for a cup of tea or heartfelt chat. As a Pastor for 24 years, I would reach out to those I knew were alone or not with family and bring them to our home for dinner. Our home always had lots of love to share with many. Everyone should have someone who cares about their health and welfare.
Our world is so fast paced we often neglect to say I love you, I care about you or you are in our thoughts and prayers. Yesterday was a special day for me. I was blessed with my extended family being here to share in laughter, food and good wishes. Watching my grandchildren grow is a treat and I am truly blessed to have such wonderful family in my life.
In a perfect world everyone would feel gratitude and joy and be with loved ones on special occasions. This is not a perfect world, so we as individuals have to make the best to enjoy the blessings we do have. For those that were alone know that many of us in the spiritual community really do care and do our best to help you on your soul journey. In love and light
“If you love something, love it completely, cherish it, say it, but most importantly, show it. Life is finite and fragile, and just because something is there one day, it might not be the next. Never take that for granted. Say what you need to say, then say a little more. Say too much. Show too much. Love too much. Everything is temporary but love. Love outlives us all.”
