Merry Christmas

Just a note to say thank you for following my brand new blog, reading my words and visiting Sweet Briar Cottage with me.

I was working at the hospital this Christmas, as I have for the past several years. I grumble about it, but truly, it’s a gift in itself. Firsthand I see the suffering of entire families, and solitary humans who pass through those weary and sterile corridors. I get to help them when they’re hurting as best I can, help their families to arrange surprise visits, place gifts at their bedside in the early hours of Christmas morning while they sleep…

I get to be the first one to say Merry Christmas to them when they wake and I wish I could convey how much hope I have for them; how much I’d like to try to help their Christmas be merry and bright, despite painful circumstances. O tidings of comfort and joy.

All this is to say, I know how lucky I am. This is not a happy time for all.

Reader, I hope you are one of the happy ones. If you’re not, I hope you have someone you can talk to and a list of things that give you solace. Sweet Briar Cottage will always have room for you.

Merry Christmas.

Love, June x
