Once again I face Xmas alone. Wife died and no relations at all.
BUT a neighbor, who I know but a little, is having a big
Xmas family dinner etc. with her Sisters, grand children etc etc.

Normally in this village I'm lucky if one person invites me in before or after Xmas for a coffee and mince pie. Never on Xmas day.

But this lovely person has invited me, a stranger to all her family, to Xmas dinner with all her extended family.

How many, so called Christians, would do that?
Would you?

Well, I don't really have the opportunity, but at least this year, unlike 2020, my s-i-l is on her way to stay with me over Christmas to the New Year. Geographically, she is now my nearest family member at 400 miles away in Hereford.

You do have my sympathy - the first Christmas without Veronica, even though some family came up, was truly awful. In a way, last year was just as bad because for the first time in my then 83 years, I woke on Christmas day to an empty house, courtesy of covid

Both of you & Flying Bomb will be in my thoughts over Chistmas.

For me, Christmas & the New Year period will, forever more, always be a truly dreadful time as my wife came home from hospital on Christmas Eve 2020 so that she could die at home, which she did on New Year's Eve.

Thank you, Phil. Like your dear wife, Veronica's final decline started over Christmas

Thanks, I often think of both of you, & you & I went through the terrible journey at more or less the same time.

Yes, it's very difficult when there's a constant media countdown (come on folks, only 60 days left before Xmas etc) to the day.
