Holidays can be a difficult time

Holidays are not all joy and carefree family encounters for everyone. While in the midst of your loving family visit take a look around to for those who are withdrawn and sullen, those who aren't part of the celebration, someone who is spending the day alone or even sequestered in the corner of the room and reach out to them. Even a few quick words and a kind smile can mean the world to someone who is feeling alone.
