The gift

Christmas for many is comfortable and sweet, a time to enjoy the fun and traditions year after year. Then things change. Loved ones pass away, families and friends rearrange their lives. Family homes are sold; children move out. Or maybe we feel we've "done" enough Christmases and wonder whether we might deserve to be a bit selfish, curl up with a good book, and just hide away until the holidays are over!

Christmas for many others is different; there are no choices and no celebrations. Just another day with a crust of bread or a scrap of food or maybe nothing. No toys, no color, no light. No hope anywhere to make one day different from another.
