To those who were alone on Thanksgiving....
To those that ARE alone on Christmas...

Someone understands your pain, someone has been where you are at.
Trust me, there are those that dread the holidays..(Me..:wavey:)
I can only speak for me.. your mileage may vary...
Get out of the house, apt, go out.
Go to Waffle house... IHOP....
Buy someone their breakfast, lunch, dinner.
Watch their smile... maybe a smile that they have not had in months..
Go do something that you like to do....

Go to the cemetery....have that talk with your parents, grandparents...maybe a child.
That talk..... that you have said that you wish you had done before......

To all that dread the holidays..
To those that are alone.....
I raise a toast.... straight eggnog.. (Nothing in it I promise)
Hang in there... yes I know the pain, trust me..(damn, tears again)
You will get through it...the sun will come up tomorrow (Lord willing)
You will make it......

So many veterans in this graveyard where my dad is! So many! Almost all are WWII veterans with a few Korea and quite a few from Vietnam! Everyone I came across I said a small prayer for them. Even one from WWI.

This guy was a golden glove champion on his ship. At least that's what he told me. Him and dad was best friends.

And this little girl was my first cousin, lived one day only.

To live one day or maybe twenty thousand days one will touch other people, and live on in their memories.

Yes, many will spend today alone. I remember times past, before I was married when I did. But I was young and know how much harder it is for older people. I am ashamed I have not done more to reach others, especially at such times as these. Maybe dont make the same mistake.

I know an old couple a few door up from me, they are both ill with Cancer. I will talk to the Mrs and suggest we invite them for tea and cake tomorrow. Not because it will make me feel better, or even them. Because its the right thing to do.

Of course, doing the right thing has almost got me killed before now and may do yet. But hey, wanna live forever...
