THEM AND ME ARE THE SAME...

Christmas Dinner?

THEM AND ME
Ya know, sometimes during these holidays I get really lost in being happy and expressing good wishes to those who are also busily being happy.

I tend to forget those who are out there--some even in HERE!-- who are unhappy, who cannot shake their past, or whose present lives are in chaos, or who are just so depressed that there seems no way out!
And for them I also pray. I know them well.
Them WERE......................ME!


Love them!

P.S. Played violin for two masses on Christmas Eve, and one Christmas Day. Also attended two AA meetings, and an "Open-House" noon buffet at our 24-Hour Club (Actually open about 17 hours.). Also got to eat (whew!) with Anna's daughter and her 'Dearest One'. Lots of nice presents all around. Thank you all for comments, Emails, and good wishes!

My thoughts are similar--I feel for those who are still sick and suffering. You are filled with a lot of goodness. Thanks for all of that.

LOve the pic. Norman Rockwell is my favorite. It reminds me of late Uncle Louis. He used to buy me Norman Rockwell plates and my mom gave me a calendar for Christmas. Glad you were able to play at your church. I'm sure all appreciated the beauty of your music.

I do wish everyone happiness. I truly mean that. I live with someone who suffers from depression, and I feel so helpless sometimes. My physical illness is so much easier to deal with than my husband's mental illness.

I went to Celebrate Recovery at our church for awhile with my husband, and it was an eye-opener for me. It's hard for me to complain about anything after spending time with the beautiful people there who suffer from depression and deal with addictions and so many other things I cannot imagine. They (you) are truly my heroes for your strength and courage.
