I celebrate Christmas, but not this year. No decorations or presents, just some food. Sad time right now with terminal illness hovering over the house. Remembering a happier one last year to get through. The year before THAT, though, was my mother in the process of slowly dying and barfing up her Christmas dinner at the table. Maybe I should just celebrate every other year, lol.

The sad thing is, we all wish we didn't have to go through watching loved ones passing but must remember there's only one way we get to avoid that happening. We must be there for them until it's someone's turn to be there for us.

Christmas isn't a happy holiday for everyone, mores the pity.

Yes definitely hugs.

My sister is going through similar. Her husband has terminal cancer. I can see it's tough on her, but she draws strength from somewhere.

You sound strong, well you always have. My father had a saying that helped me when I going through very tough times.

" Just plod thought it ". So I would think of that, one foot in front of the other, slowly plodding along.

Well said, BruSan. The price we pay for love is grief.

So much can happen in the space of a couple of hundred days. Trying to be grateful for all the good days we had.

Ha, your father was a smart man. I learned to think that way, in small increments. Minute by minute, dollar by dollar, pound by pound, etc. It's coming in handy these days.

And no matter what, when you get older and time is running out, you can still enjoy things when you are still here. Music, a funny TV show, a food treat. The small things become precious.

Merry Christmas, all.

The article does not state that.

It stated " Refugee admissions fell to a record low of 11,445 in the 2021 n the 2021 fiscal year, not including Afghan evacuees,"

In 1994 we accepted 186,555 refugees..which I believe is the most we have done in a single year.

Your article says "Canada welcomed over 401,000 new permanent residents in 2021." of which 70 percent were already IN Canada.

A very different thing
