For those living a difficult Christmas

Special thoughts and prayers for those who on this Christmas Eve are grieving, sad, lonely, brokenhearted, or depressed. Prayers and thoughts also for all those who live with addictions and for whom this is a particularly challenging season. May peace be with you all.

"Why, this is Hell, nor am I out of it." This is the season where I undergo a form of divorce (as if I hadn't learned enough from the first, real, one); of having to move to another place; of having failed students because I missed reading their papers and now have to fix my mistake; of having no idea how I am going to survive in a world about which I know nothing. I believe the word is "flooded," and that is what I am. Christmas should be a time of rebirth and joy. This year it is surrounded by the imagery of death.
