The Holidays are here. So many wonderful moments to share and hugs to embrace. But for many there are tears amidst the smile. The holidays can be a complex and difficult time; memories of happier times perhaps. Cherished moments held close. And in doing so we are reminded of a loneliness within. Sometimes it is felt in the midst of many, and sometimes most painfully felt in the night season.
This human journey is made richer, warmer, and fuller by a smile, a note, or kind word. May we make it our goal to give a gift of friendship to a lonely heart this season. Perhaps make time in your schedule to share a meal, bake a cake and have a cuppa with one you have not seen in awhile.
Consider sharing your idea of how to light a lite in someones heart. Your inspiration may ignite another. Comments welcome!
