On Christmas Day I reflect on friendships gained and some lost and realize that tis the season to be joyful. We should be thankful for what we have and not focus on what we have lost. If there is something or someone you no longer have in your life, don’t dwell on that but realize that there is a reason for that. They were there for a season and that is what it was meant to be. Yes it hurts to lose friendships but rather than focus on losing a friend why not focus on the fun times or the enjoyable moments you had.
Not all friendships last forever and that is something we all should be very aware of. We will all experience pain and loss but through the pain and loss we get character for without trials we can never grow and without friends (current or past) we would be lonely.
Some friends are for a lifetime and some just for a season but every friend you have or had was there for a reason even if we can’t always remember why. If you search long and hard you will always find an answer as to why you have the friends you do and why you had the friends you did.
Enjoy this holiday and be thankful for whatever life has brought you for through it all you have become the person you are and that is a lot to be grateful for.
Now a little holiday song from my daughter to you that is sure to get your Christmas Day off to a fun start:
