I posted an article at Blogher today about helping friends when the Holiday season is less-than-joyous.
There are difficult times in all our lives, and often illness, hurt, or loss can change the way that friends or family members approach this time of year. This week, I talked to friends and family members for whom December is a particularly difficult month. They shared insights into simple things friends can do to make the holidays more peaceful and loving.
I did my best to pass them along.
If you are having a tough Holiday Season, I wish you peace and comfort. To the extent that healing is possible, I wish you that as well. And I hope the New Year brings unexpected joys for you and your family.
