Christmas doesn’t have to be perfect

I know many of you out there are celebrating a less-than-ideal holiday. You may be visiting your loved ones in a care center. They may not be able to communicate with family anymore.

Or like me, you may be grieving the loss of a loved one today.

But as many of you have illustrated on your own blogs, wallowing in pity will not make the holiday season any brighter. While it takes effort, we must find ways to appreciate what we do have, and cherish the happy memories with those who have departed.

No day is perfect, just like no person is perfect. But every day and every person is special, if we only take the time to seek out the good.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family.

  1. I hope you were able to enjoy Christmas Day. I was just on a blog where the woman lost her father-in-law just this Monday before Christmas. I wish these things didn’t have to happen around the holidays, but life is what it is. We spent it with my in-laws, and they are not well. I’m glad we were able to be with them for the holiday, as it’s a long shot for my father-in-law to be here for the next one. I wish you blessings in the new year.
