It is good to be told be happy – sometimes it is too easy to be miserable. At Christmas I am happy that we have a time set aside where we can delight in those we love and, maybe give them some joy as well as happily accepting their love. It is a feast time too – yay! Lets celebrate that. Can we not enjoy the fun and humour of feasting with the people we love – if only once a year?
Well, sadly, no. Most of us can’t because we are poor, starving, imprisoned, ill or alone. For so many people, it is often the time of regret and sadness…..no loved ones, no joy and certainly no fun and laughter.On Earth, peace and good will to all men…if only.
Can we not try it this time? Hey, we have a shiny new President in America and some hope. It is within our gift if we looked beyond our own small circle. Can we do that? I fear not. It hasn’t happened yet. But, one day, just maybe. Can’t we give it a chance?
