Christmas and New Year is a very stressful time for many. Those who can afford the joys of Christmas cheer and those who can’t.
For those of you who care for loved ones who used to care for you, it is a time to look at the fond memories and not at what is a difficult time to cope with.
For those who have lost loved ones in many situations, be it an act of crime, an act of war or an act of god.
Those who have lost someone dear the first Christmas is always the hardest, but their memory will live on and comfort is taken looking back with happy memories.
God bless all those who can’t be home for Christmas for one reason or another and god bless those who are at home who make our Christmas special.
A Christmas prayer to all those brave men and women of the armed forces who can’t be home for Christmas.
