Tis the season to be jolly for most people, yet there are many that do not get to share that feeling this time of the year. There are many like myself that can only thank God that we are still alive here. I am one that is grateful that I am still alive because each day I live is another day of hope. For many of us life is just getting shorter and there is nothing we can do about it. When they tell you that all they can do is try to make you as comfortable as possible that is just what they mean. There is no more trying anything to make you better, because there is no getting better.
This is the time when one finds out who their real friends and family are. It is hard to deal with death as we know it and for some there is no dealing with it at all, because they don’t want to read or hear about it. I have been told even on here that they didn’t want to see it on my post, even by my own son. Well at this point in my life I really don’t care what people like that think. I sit here alone everyday except for my friend and caregiver, without any support for anyone else. Sure I have Hospice checking on me, but that is not the same as family or friends.
This is the time of year when depression is at it highest and many will not make it through the season, so it is up to you as a friend or family member to help where help is needed. If nothing else just check on someone to see if there is anything that you can do to try and make their holidays better.
I know this is not much but it’s all I can give, Hope that you have a blessed Holiday.
My gift is that my Lord as allowed me to still be here and that’s the greatest gift of all.
Miss Bobbie Jean.
