Love the unloved 

  

To many of us, Christmas is a time for family, love and laughter. But for some, Christmas is no different to any other time of the year, as loneliness and isolation presses on their lives, minds and hearts: the elderly, the homeless, the orphans and many others. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own way of living that we forget or we ignore or we pretend. Who could you reach out to? Perhaps it’s the homeless man you walk passed everyday on your way to work or the neighbour on your street or the elderly grandparent. What could you do? Have a simple short conversation or send them a letter or pay them a visit. Even the smallest acknowledgements that the lonely are still fellow beings can greatly brighten their day. Because they are still human. In a dark time of loneliness, we can be one beacon of light.
