I remember this Christmas Time with gratitude for the people I love, all the people I have known and have played a part in my life.
Sometimes just remembering those no longer here, leads me to shed some tears for times gone by, the presence felt but not physical anymore, the importance of them to me.
Sometimes sadness engulfs me for a little while and I wonder why it happens when it does. It can be seeing an advert at Christmas time, it can be a smell or a song.
I guess we never forget, we just distract ourselves with living.
Today I send out a prayer to the world, to give my thanks for the special people I have known.
Remembering you all with gratitude.
