The author I am quoting lost a child to cancer.
I have stumbled upon four truths about Christmas this year that I would like to share with others who are hurting, grieving, or lonely.
- Christmas will be hard.
- You aren’t alone in your hurting.
- Sitting in a fetal position crying doesn’t change truth number 1, it just gets uncomfortable.
- December 26th will come.
So let us raise our glasses to the smooth side, drink in every bit of Christmas joy we can scrape together, knowing that the decorations will soon come down and maybe, just maybe, next Christmas will hold a bit more merriment.
