It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year again, the time for family, friends, food and gifts. To celebrate together and be merry.

I know this can be a tough time for a lot of people with chronic illness, and those with little or no family. For any of you reading this and finding things tough at the moment please know I am thinking of you.

For me Christmas is a lovely time of year, spent with family and friends still. However it is rather challenging and no doubt I will overdo things and have a number of bad days following the festivities. But I hope it will be worth it, even if it is just seeing some smiles on my family’s faces and making sure none of my family are left alone this Christmas; as a family we always have tried to make sure none of our family, or friends, spend Christmas on their own and that tradition continues.

I find it a little more difficult since getting ill but it really is worth it. Christmas is all about spreading joy and kindness, and that’s what we try to do.

Anyway I am wishing you all the Very Merriest of Christmasses, I hope you are able to enjoy at least a moment or two of the day and that there is something, no matter how small, to smile about.
