This isn’t one of the fun posts on my Blog. Not an easy subject to bring up. This morning I heard the news that the only son of friends took his life. What a great kid and now he is gone. I never would have believed it. Even now, this morning I am struggling to accept he is gone. The Holiday Season can be painful for many. For the lonely, heart broken, those suffering from sickness or financial struggles the Holidays can be particularly difficult. If you are suffering please know that you are precious to many. You would be missed if you were suddenly not here. We pass through difficult times, often bruised and beat up, but stronger in the end if we endure. Love is found again and the sunshine warms us after the storms life inevitably brings. If you are struggling reach out to someone. Let’s have a talk. We love you. We care about you. We need you in our lives. For the rest of us, slow down during this season and be aware of those that may be lonely, out of work, sick or for any other reason you feel prompted to reach out to. We just never know who might be struggling. Some times the greatest gift that can be given is a moment of your time.
