Bringing in the Holidays with the Flower of Friendship Award

With the Christmas holiday upon us, it is easy for the chronically ill to feel lonely and depressed.

Doctors are so aware of the problem of depression and suicide this time of year that they make a point of asking if your family situation has changed and how are you going to spend your holiday.

During this season, people who are debilitated start to reflect on their loss of good health, loss of job, loss of friends, loss of home, lack of food, etc. Their losses can take center stage at this time. And, in some cases send them to a place of no return.

That is why this award was so welcomed when I received it from Carole King at Inspired Journey. It let me know that someone thought of me. Carole took time out of her day to remind me that I have a friend who cares. Carole is indeed a good friend and it is nice to know that she feels the same way.

So, now it is time for me to reconize a few of my other friends. If your name appears below,
(A) download the badge
(B) upload it to your site
(C) link back to this blog
(D) spread the love to at least seven other bloggers

And my friends are;
1. Mixed up Optimistic Pessimist
2. Psyche Analyzed
3. Heart Failure Solutions
4. The Spirit Knows Best
5. Chronic Chick Talk
6. Seeking Inner Peace
7. The Golden Flow of the Law of Attraction

Be well my friends!!!

Hi Chick; I hope you are better soon. Winter is hard on the chronically ill. Depression creeps in so easily.

You can post your award when ever you feel like it. I just wanted you to know that I appreciate our friendship.
