Challenges ahead

As the last bright colors of fall begin to fade, 
And winter’s chill belatedly creeps in, 
Our thoughts turn to the holidays ahead; 
Anticipating gatherings of family and friends, 
The days ahead are filled with plans — 
For food, for gifts, for traveling — 
But also with anxieties, with loneliness and loss. 
Conflicting expectations can easily drain energy: 
Be kind to yourself and others 
In the challenging months ahead.
