In December, the cities radiate with Christmas lights scattered everywhere. It is also a time when we see more people on the streets, in that frantic movement looking for gifts and decoration items.
In stores and restaurants, the music brings that nostalgic feeling that another year is ending. The date breathes celebration. Unfortunately, not for everyone.
For many, Christmas is not a time of celebration as it brings up bad memories such as the loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship, divorce, and moments marked by fights and conflicts. The opposite of what is promoted at Christmas.
What would be moments of joy, are often marked by the pain of loneliness, and longing for those we love who are very far – like struggling immigrants far from their homeland in search of a better future.
How can we not mention those who are already of age, living in nursing homes where they often lack the affection and attention of their family?
What if you allowed yourself to have a different Christmas?
Don’t be lonely this Christmas!
We invite you to join us on Christmas Day, at 11 am, for an empowerment meeting that could change your life! Give yourself this opportunity!
