Nothing clever to say...

I don't have anything clever to say today (yes, it's fairly disputable whether I have anything clever to say ever, I know)... On facebook this morning a friend's status update let her friends know her dear grandmother had passed away. At the same time a very close friend's father went into palliative care today and will likely pass this coming week. And so I'm reminded that while this time of year is lovely, it's also a sad time for some people. Dave and his mum will be celebrating their first Christmas without a dad and a husband, and while it's been six months, the pain just sits there quietly in the air. Occassionally, I can see it brush against them when they're not expecting it to.

So, for all the people who will be missing people this Christmas, I wish you happy memories to warm you and maybe even make you smile through those tears that threaten when you remember your loved ones.
