To all those who have suffered loss of loved ones recently, and those with other family worries: words don’t help much but you know we are all thinking about you.
Every blessing

That's a very thoughtful thing to say Steragram.
There's a Welsh word - 'Hiraeth' - which means an aching hurt and grieving deep inside your soul, (there isn't an equivalent English word for it) and it's a very difficult thing to deal with, especially at Christmas time.
Love and good wishes to everyone experiencing hiraeth this Christmas xxx

Christmas can be a lovely time but tinged with sadness too, for me its remembering those who used to sit at the christmas table, and those who I can't send a card any more.....But the happy times are the children and their happiness, and friends too.......especially the lovely friends here, happy christmas love Pam xxx

Pam, why not light a candle on the Christmas table to represent those you miss? I've done this and its comforting.

I'm glad lots of you appreciate the message. We can give thanks for what we had and for what we still have after all.

Hywel, I'd thought hiraeth only meant longing for your country when you were away. Thank you for that! Its a lovely word - somehow has a nostalgic sound to it.
