While most of us are with family, eating too much, throwing away wrapping paper, drinking plenty, counting our gifts.... this christmas has been different for me this year for many reasons.
Please spare a thought for those who work in hospices, caring for the terminally ill. A christmas filled with saddness and joy- but one where they try to remain positive and up beat. This makes such a huge difference to the paitents and families. A moment of light relief.
Please also spare a thought for those who will be working in care homes, homeless shelters, refuges, hostels, hospitals and other selfless occupations today.
If you are with family or friends then be grateful that you have a day with them, and most of all, enjoy it.
Wishing you a safe, healthy and happy christmas :)
P.s. Dont forget to donate unwanted presents and recycle cards and wrapping paper :)
