December 1 / December 2 / December 3
When my husband John was alive we both loved Christmas and enjoyed decorating the house together and shopping for gifts for the family and friends. The highlight was once the church was decorated and the children performed their nativity play. Then there was the midnight service and the carol singing in the Devonvale Hall to look forward to.
When John died just shortly before Christmas six years ago everything changed for me. I found it very difficult to cope or attend the church services on my own that we had once enjoyed so much. However as time has passed I am beginning to learn to do things by myself and once again enjoy attending church and can honestly say that this year I am really looking forward to Christmas and taking part in all that it entails.
