Christmas time

Christmas is nearly upon us, I have just a few hours left before it is Christmas day. My family are here, we are together, we are safe, well and looking forward to tomorrow.

We will get up early no doubt, well before the sunrise at 6am, eat copious amounts of chocolate, open presents, go for a lovely swim at the beach, come home and have lunch and enjoy our new gifts and each others company.

I will think of my friends and family far away , and will call a few and wish them a Happy Christmas.
And I will think of all of you and wonder what you are doing and hope that you too are having a happy time with friends and family.

And I will also think of those who are not with the people they should be with, the Armed forces from all over the world who are spending time in places far from home, I will think of doctors, nurses and relief workers and emergency service personnel in organisations around the world spending their day helping others and I will think of those that have no one to share their time with, the forgotten, the unloved and the "cast asides".

And I will be thankful for what I have and i will enjoy it all, each and every moment.

For those of you who celebrate Christmas I wish you a Merry Christmas and for those of you who do not, I wish you a Happy holiday.
 With love from "Far away Land".
