Christmas is a time for family, but family can have many meanings. While we may automatically think of Mom and Dad, Grandparents and Kids, family can mean different things for many people. For those not lucky enough to have their family near, they may think on family very differently to you and I.
Family can be close friends, people who care about you, or even your pets who show you unconditional love and warmth, but most of all it can mean your Church Family, who not only support you in person, but in spirit too. We can all be thankful to our families no matter what form they take in this blessed season.
