show were having an actress who does a onewoman show as Abigail Adams wife of the second president John Adams Our show will be one of the only two performances in Texas this season the other is at UT Austin We got lucky Some of us need help making those Christmas bells ring This column is not intended to be morbid On the contrary This week its intended to offer an invitation not only to feel joyful but to spread that joy around perhaps in places you dont want to go Those places might put a small lump in your throat and shade your red and green just a little bit blue but only temporarily You can handle a few minutes at a time cant you You see its like this there are many of us who have lost a child or a spouse since last Christmas Guess how we feel about Christmas this year We dont care about decorating a tree or even buying we dont want to sing carols or bake cook ies or send Christmas cards or shop for gifts let alone wrap Wed just as soon sit and vegetate our numbness being punctuated from time to time with good old crying jags Only theyre not good and each one is anything but old the hurt seems fresh and new each time Are you uncomfortable I imagine there are many of you who are a bit disapproving of someone sharing her feelings so THE ART OF THE MATTER openly Well it wont be the first time that habit caused me problems But over the years Ive noticed that trying to close off caused even more trouble so here I am warts and all Elizabeth Elliott Recently I admitted to you that many times this column is created out of my own observations and experiences so let me do it again Let me speak for all the people who have walked in my moc casins this past year and dont have a column Im the lucky one This is my therapy talking to vou First of all let me tell you that although we know you havent stopped caring about us the ones still in the grieving youve been avoiding us like the plague Your eyes look else where when you say Merry and then you correct yourself and say I know it will be hard but try to have a happy Some of you start to say or do something loving but catch yourself in the nick of time to protect yourself from awkwardness There are fewer Christmas cards this year and invitations to hol iday gatherings are at an all time low We under stand your discomfort You almost feel guilty being excited and happy in our presence and yet dont really want us to rain on your parade Furthermore youre convinced that we consider all the trappings of Christmas as Youre almost right Rub our noses in it Left to our own devices we might go into hibernation and come out well after the first of the year But no matter how many layers we wrap around our winter we cant shut out the pain We need your sun to thaw us We need strong hugs and jokes and wonder ful cookies and bright flowers and caroling serenades and pulling us out of our houses and telling us how much you love us and making us feel alive when were not sure we want to Dont pull back Have the courage to get in our DARE us to be happy with God knows we WANT to be Rub our noses in joy and laughter Wrap your Christmas love around us We wont mind a bit It will keep us warm
