The Christmas Memories of the past are
beautiful, when the kids were little and we
could all Celebrate as a family.
As they were growing up, we still celebrated
the Holidays. There was never a lot of money
to buy expensive gifts, but we manage to have
enough food and buy a few gifts for everyone.
Those were the happy days, or shall I say - the
Good old days. Soon the kids grew up, got
married and moved away. They don't come around
much. They now have their own celebrations.
Some parents are forgotten and are now alone,
because one left, or has passed away. Sometimes
it is a single mother, that went through a lot of hard
times to raise her kids.
That mother, now sits alone on this lonely Christmas
Eve and Christmas Day, thinking of what the days
gone by used to be. The Baby Jesus is the only one
that keeps her company on this Christmas Day...

A friend asked me to write something on this
topic. Like her there many of us that have to
to spend The Holidays alone, sometimes it
is a father.
