Today I am thinking about those people feeling a little lost this time of year. Not everyone is surrounded by family, friends, and joy this holiday season. Some have suffered loss while others may be alone or far away from home. There are families worried about where their next meal is coming from or if they will still have a place to live when the new year arrives.

Take a moment to check in on folks and make sure they are okay. Sometimes just having a friend reach out makes all the difference in the world. Are all y'all doing okay with the upcoming holidays?

Happy holidays, everyone!

This holiday will be a little easier for me than last Christmastime because I'm better prepared for the feast (bringing dishes I can eat) and I've learned better how to deflect some of the (minor) social pressure that comes with the holiday.

But, yeah, there are people out there who are wondering how they'll get through the family gathering -- or who wish they had a family gathering to go to.

Excellent suggestion, Cricket, to reach out as each of us can to help each other out. You don't have to have a perfect house or table to be the perfect host for someone!

Yes. There has been a lot of death around me this year. I've never been much of a holiday person anyway, never understood the mentality of the crass consumerism.

I don't think anybody I know is in the mood this year. Plus, a lot of people around my part of the world just don't get into it anymore.

I still like the stuff from when I was a kid though..........the shows. Charlie Brown, Frosty, Rudolph, and even Garfield.

Wishing a Merry Christmas to all.

Cricket, I think that is a great idea. I need to look at ways of doing a little of that every day. May be my New Year's Resolution - do something each day that brings a little hope and happiness to others.

Chaidragonfire, I too never tire of seeing the old shows, Burl Ives, Bing Crosby, etc. It does seem that Christmas was more anticipated with excitement as a kid.

Not all of our family is getting together this holiday season, so that has taken a little of the holiday spirits away.

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it! Be sure to be good to yourself as well as to others!
It's a quiet Christmas for me--the first one without my mother. I'll be spending part of it with my husband's family as all of my surviving family is out of town/state.
