Comfort in numbers

In seasons of sadness,
there's temptation to retreat. 
To hide in the dark. 
Keeping secret the private struggles and pain we're feeling. 

It takes time to heal, yes. 
But our instincts aren't always correct-
especially when emotions fog up our glasses. 
We can't see things objectively.

At Christmas time,
being with those friends and family who know you
and remember the loved ones you miss,
may just be what you need.

I pray
that loneliness
will not be
your only companion
this year.
