There is lots happening just now with Covid and us all missing our family and friends. I am so privileged to live by the sea, have forests on my doorstep and easy access to the mountains. I can get out yet I miss folks dropping in fir a cup of tea. Many are not so fortunate.
Sadly we have lost so many great people this year and sadly we cannot celebrate their lives in the usual way. I cannot imagine how hard it must be to lose a loved one and yet not get together to celebrate their lives.
It makes you think on your own mortality. What really matters in life and when we leave we take nothing with us. Many spend their lives buying “stuff”that much will end up in a skip at the end. I have had and still am having a big sort out. I find I am another who had too much “stuff”so I am trying to take most of it to the charity shops.
Let’s not forget those less fortunate than us. My wee village has a food box in the village I donate every week how sad that there are people going hungry lost their jobs and are going to struggle this Christmas.
So as you order loads of “ stuff” on the internet or in the shops have a thought for those less fortunate.
As someone said “it’s better to give than receive” let’s all try to do our bit. You will feel better.
