Christmas isnt.............................................

Christmas isnt always happy for everyone.
Myself its going to be drastic with all the family fueding..........................but please if you have an elderly neighbour, or a girl with kids on here own, or hubby away, please take a minute to say Merry Christmas.
Some elderly people dont have anyone to speak too for days.
Just a thought....................................................................

as you said many people forget about those on there own...... we looked after two elderly neighbours for years until they died and now only have foreign neighbours etc. as we have no elderly around us. but hey we still give to charity.


i worked in a nursing home and it ws an eye oepner how many patients ha dno visitors over christmas. but they soon turned up when they thought the patient was dying.... enough said i think....

people and families are not just there to be that bit extra cash when they die.. they are human and have feelings and without them you wouldnt be here. so give them a thought.... they deserve the best. even if you only visit for half an hour it will make their year. xxx
live life to the full as life is what you make itxx
