The holidays aren’t so jolly for everyone. It’s important to be mindful of that, even if you are dashing through the snow in an one horse open sleigh and full of good cheer.
This year in particular has been traumatic for the countless Americans who lost loved ones due to the Corona virus pandemic.
Or folks not being able to be with families in a traditional way due to social distancing concerns.
Some folks are suffering due to other tragedies that ended the lives of loved ones.
Old and young.
Grieving in silence and darkness.
Some folks are going through a separation or divorce.
Saying goodbye to memories and having to start over.
Some are estranged from their adult children due to issues never ironed out.
Missing conversations or visits.
Many folks are struggling financially, being laid-off, fired or displaced.
Losing their businesses.
Unable to provide for their families.
Some folks are dealing with a host of mental or physical health issues.
Trying to navigate one day at a time.
So, this holiday season, while you have an abundance of food on your plate, remember all the folks who have other concerns on theirs.
