The world doesn't stop because you're widowed, divorced, depressed & destitute.
These are great! You will have a beautiful Christmas. I've been putting up Christmas lights. I trust they bring joy to my neighbors. Yes, I still long for what and who is missing, and I'm sometimes metaphorically shivering in the cold without a sweater. It helps to know that everybody who loves and commits to life with their beloved faces loss. We're in this together. Here's a great big hug to keep you warm.
