The day after Christmas and still no creature is stirring not even a dog-I hear snores coming from the living room. I spent a quiet and relatively peaceful day yesterday. Others close to me are not so lucky this year and I feel their pain. A marriage falling apart, a breaking heart and all one can do is listen. Times like this are always distressful but at the holidays seem so much more so. Gratitude was a word that I thought long and hard about yesterday-my husband giving a gift I thought was inappropriate. Talking about pain and loss made my upset about a gift seem minor indeed. Knowing I am loved is a gift in itself and one that I cherish especially this year.
