Here is my journal for today - we were asked to contrast happy and not so happy memories of Christmas.
The Journalling reads
Within each Christmas are contrasting memories. No one Christmas being the best ever or the worst ever, each contains a mix oh highs and lows.
Highs like spending time with wonderful people, the small package at the bottom of the pile which held an something beautiful, a hug, the joy of giving, finding that special gift, delicious food, a touching message from someone - the things which make you feel special and wanted.
Lows like missing people who are no longer with us or just no longer part of my life, lows like being stuck in traffic rather than being where others are, or being too ill to join in with anything
Mostly though the memories make me smile.
Thanks for looking
