Let's face it, Christmas can be a hard time of the year for many people. For many different reasons. Family fights, bad food, lots of travelling, staying in crowded accommodation or having your own home bursting with people, financial stress... I could go on and on.
Someone once told me that all it takes to enjoy Christmas is to make it enjoyable for someone else. In the past when I have been dreading a Christmas party or a family gathering I have gone out of my way to see that someone else has a wonderful time and surprisingly each year I have ended up enjoying myself too.
This year I am going to do everything I can to make this Christmas about my Mum. My Mum has spent the last month in hospital and we don't know whether she will be home for Christmas. I have only been able to see her once during this time (due to living 4 hours away) and I can't wait to see her. I am bursting with excitement just thinking about making this Christmas enjoyable for my Mum- no time to think selfish thoughts.
Who can you make Christmas enjoyable for this year?
