A wish...

I can not help but be reminded at this time of year of those who are alone. While so many of us are happy and celebrating the season with family and friends there are those who are silent and alone in their solitude.

This Holiday season it is my wish that I be given the opportunity to reach out to one who is lonely.  I have been in this room before and know that it is not the place that one usually wants to reside in.  Yet there is something that keeps many from reaching out to any to end this fate.

Opportunities are with us daily.  Too often we chose to not take notice to them and shrug them off.  It is my wish that my eyes be open, that my heart be tender, and that my courage be strong. 

Even those who appear to be strong are sometimes weak.

Very true. December is often a blue, blue month made all that more difficult by the constant display of merriment and happiness all around.

Beautiful sentiments. As a behavior disorders teacher in the junior high, the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is very difficult for a lot of kids.

You are so right! This is a season of sadness for some and sometimes all they need is someone to smile and offer a kind word. I do this all year but make sure to step it up around the holidays! What a great wish.

Hugs and Blessings

What a wonderful wish. Every year my job throws a big holiday party with dinner and gifts for the clients. This is a hard time of the year for many of them who are alone and in shelters. I always reach out to them, especially, to attend the party. To see the smiles on their face at the end of the day is my greatest gift.

One of my fave. songs, bittersweet and beautiful. You spoke to my heart here and thank you for your comments on my blog. They warmed my heart.

Very beautifully put. i was thinking about that just the other day. That the numbers of suicide actually increase at this time, and was wondering what to say about it. i love how you said it.
Courage to see the issue and address.

I love your thoughts and wishes. I love that they are spoken early in the season.

I believe there are many alone.

We will help.

Blessings.

You have already reached out to so many with your words!

I always have mixed feelings about this time of year. So much joy on one hand - so much to be thankful for. But also so many people going without. That's why I love to support our local food bank - I know the people in my area will benefit.

Great thoughts when waiting Christmas days. But all the time is nice to offer smiles and touching words.

What a kind and beautiful post! You are so very right. I will make every effort to reach out to those who may not have anyone to share this holiday time with this season. And thank you for sharing the lovely music of Enya - we had her enchanting tunes played at our wedding many years ago. Theresa
