I always remember what the true meaning of Christmas is every time I look at the heavens and see that bright, shining star... always makes me smile!

Well the time is getting closer for that special day. You know reading the blogs (which I so appreciate you responding). Many have a hard time on this time of year because it is so commercialized now. I went to a Christmas program at a church last night that the emphasizes was on not getting caught up in the commercial side of it all, but remember what it is all about (Kinda hard though huh?):) You know I was sad because I wasn't going to be with my kids because they live out of state. Well so be it that my fate has turned and I get to go see them, they are all going to come to one place!! So having hope and good thoughts sometimes helps. Or maybe God really does know the desire of our hearts?? Humm I send good thoughts to all of you and if you want to e-mail me I would love to hear from you!! Keep smiling and having hope the NEW YEAR will be even better!!

Sweet: It is difficult to be alone. My family is all up east but I do have my grown girls and grandson that I get to visit. But as you said, it is a time to be thankful for what God has given us and to remember the greatest gift was Jesus, the real reason for the season. We may be far apart but I hope you feel the love coming from this group as we, from a distance, wrap our arms around you and know that you are loved. There are so many of us who are single. We are the BK family and we stand beside you even though it is on the computer. I remember when there was no computer. This is an incredible instrument for us to share our feelings with each other. That is a gift in and of its self. You are NOT alone. Now .....go find that ride !

Dear Sweet, Absolutely! I definitely know what you're talking about. Yes, it's hard. Everything seems magnified due to the fact that the world is putting so much emphasis on "being with the one you love" while "Jack Frost is nipping at your nose" and you are "roasting chestnuts on an open fire." In reality though, the real deal is "Bells will be ringing the sad, sad news, oh what a Christmas to have the blues. My baby's gone, I have no friends, to wish me greetings once again . . . . and so on and on the song goes (and so eloquently I may add). And, I might also say, Jack Frost isn't nipping at my nose. It's @#%* freezing and I think I'm getting the flu! This is the reality of it all. There are so many people out there who ARE depressed and feeling very much alone. Christmas, and all the commercialism that it entails, just makes the wounds that we have experienced and are trying to heal up crack open and ooze out more pain and hurt than is necessary. My advice to you, and to anyone else out there who shares my feelings on this, is to forget the whole idea of total bliss, tranquility, warmth and peace that seems to be the prevalent "what you should feel" message, and remember that in fact, other than the most important issue, that being the birth of our savior, it is just another holiday season. Just like any other month of the year. Just like a party, when it's all over and everyone goes home, reality always bites you in the rear end. This time though, you have the worst hangover because you were drinking so much to try to forget that everything isn't as "Norman Rockwell perfect" as it should be." I personally, choose to skim over all the holiday madness and think instead of the new year and all the hope and promise that it brings. Love to you all . . . . Sea

Hi Sweet, Yes it is hard for me too. My mom died at Christmas and my family and I are not close. But, it gets a bit easier as time goes by..or you get more immune to it. I just think about what it all really means and honor the day in my own way. Hey, I think I heard that same bike!! Take good care, T
