Not everybody is having a grand time this season of festivities, because there are many who are away from home, from their love ones and celebrating is far from pleasing for them.
Like us they are shedding tears, but not from mirth as we watch kids and adults in our reunion join the parlor games. They are tearing open letters and not gifts as we do ours. And as the clock strikes 12, only a whispered greeting to the thousands of miles away family and not the cheers, hugs and kisses we give one another. I am truly glad to work at home than someplace else.
One thing only can be common, the prayer of thanks for another year.
