Not all Joy
I’m all about joy at Christmas. This is the time of year when joy should be at it’s fullest. For those who are suffering through Christmas without a lost loved one, their grief might be at its’ fullest.
If you meet a lady shopping for herself at this time of year, it may be more than just self-indulgence. It could be the fulfillment of a promise made by someone who is no longer able to follow-through. It might even be the turning point in accepting the loss of a parent or spouse, or even a divorce.
Exuberance is understandable at Christmastime, but you might add more joy to just one person’s season by respectfully and compassionately helping them commemorate a somber occasion.
