Crazy time of the year almost over!

Merry Xmas! Yeah, In know--for many this time of the year is anything but---that is for a variety of reasons. For many it is about money and the terrible debt that so people get into, while for others it is a time when they cannot even do that, simply because they are unable to 'achieve that' doubtful status! No one will give them credit. Their kids do not receive anything because there is nothing to give. The world of advertising is a cruel reminder that they are not part of the Xmas cheer! Xmas is a lie for them. That does not mean that they do not find joy in their families and friends but it is a difficult time. At the other end of the scale and for those 'in between,' Xmas can be a time of stress and sometimes people come together, simply because they feel they must. Then other factors take over. Old 'scores,' and strained relationships are further put to the test. Over indulgence of various 'substances' cause damage and families suffer as a result. BY the time 'Boxing Day is done and dusted, there are many who throw their hands up with a sense of---'Thank God, that is over for the year.' I am just grateful that it has been a time of simple pleasure, being with family and seeing friends, with little pressure to be or to 'provide' beyond that which I am not capable of. I now look forward to a new year, with hope and a healthy sense of 'challenge.' I wish everyone joy, peace and I hope that you find those 'treasures' you most value, whatever your faith, belief or station in life. www.authorneilcoleman.com
