When Christmas HURTS.

What is True,
yet so hard to remember,
just because it isn't really what happens to me?
When Christmas HURTS.
A lot of people are HURTING at the thought of Christmas.
A lot of people have lost someone they love,
and thinking of Christmas without them HURTS.
Christmas is a lot about family,
and some families HURT.
People who are HURTING
HURT others.
And When there is a lot of HURT in your family.
Christmas HURTS a lot.
Maybe you have no family.
Being alone could HURT too.
A lot of people,
might have been you one year in the past,
it might be you some year in the future.
A lot of people,
may be that lady in the store that looked grieved,
or who acted like she was in a bad mood.
It may be a child walking home from school,
with that sad look on her face.
So why should we remember?
There's nothing we can do, is there?
Well, we can PRAY.
We can SMILE FRIENDLY to the grumpy lady in the store.
We can HUG hurting/sad/even happy people we know.
and we can be THANKFUL that Christmas doesn't HURT to us.
We can LOOK UP from our own little world and see the HURT in the eyes of others
(though you've got to look them in the eye to see it)
and LOVE them.
Welcome them,
care for them.
And maybe Christmas won't hurt quite as much this year.

I stayed up late tonight to finish writing in cards for my students. I hope they will feel the Christmas love and find a little glimmer of joy as they read the words and eat the goody I put inside.
