Union County, Blairsville, Georgia Holiday-Winter 2018-2019 - Page 22

Page 22 Union County GA Magazine Christmas is ... By Norm Cooper Is a time filled with holiday cheer. a time of depression and despair. Is a time of giving and sharing. a time of grieving and loneliness. Is a time of partying and making merry. a time of sitting at home alone and wondering. Is a time of singing. a time of silence. Is a time of making memories to be enjoyed for years to come. a time of unwanted memories that will haunt the mind. Is a time when love within a family grows. a time when bitterness entrenches even deeper. Is a time when many eat bountifully. a time when hunger gnaws the worst. Is a time when wounds heal. a time when scars are opened again. Is a time when the lights on the tree glIsten brightly. a time when the angel on the tree fades into darkness. Is a time when stockings are hung by the chimney with care. a time when some will have no stockings to hang. Is a time of anticipated joy. a time of unanticipated sadness. Is a time for renewed commitment. a time to question the value of trusting. Is a time of joy by being around family and friends. a time of withdrawal for those who feel unloved. Is a time of acceptance. a time of rejection. Is a time of understanding. a time of uncompromIsing. Is a time of consolation. a time of tribulation. Is a time of harmony and condolence. a time for insensitivity and harshness. Is a time for anticipating the holidays with gladness. MAHAN FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Devan Mahan, D.C.
