JOURNEY TO THE OLYMPICS - ROUND FOUR - PEACE

This song for me represents Peace I remember one Christmas in particular many years ago...I had become homeless with my three girls as the relationship I was in broke down and he wanted us to move out... I stayed with a friend for a week but had to look for a place to rent..it was actually two weeks before Christmas and I had very little money...I had some savings but was going to use them on Christmas presents... I couldn't as I had to find a roof to put over our heads...! I found a little two bed Terraced house unfurnished..I only had a few items of furniture and no beds so we slept on a mattress...I managed to get a grant from the authorities to help me get some basic things second hand mainly... I had no money to get gifts for my girls...we managed to get hold of a turkey with what little money I had left and some vegetables. I remember Lucy saying to me a few nights before Christmas...she said mum I don't care about Christmas presents just as long as we have some food...and we are together. I held back the tears until she went to bed....Then a miracle happened my best friend's daughter sorted through her old toys and gave them to us, so the girls would have christmas presents on Christmas Day... Christmas Eve I went along to Midnight Mass this Christmas carol was sung by the choir and the congregation...I felt a sudden peace come over me and realised the true meaning of Christmas was not giving presents but Love and friendship which is more precious ....being with the ones you love. Love and Peace is very important and I found my peace on Christmas Eve...Ok I had nothing materially, but I had more than that I had my family, true friendship, love and peace....who could ask for more!

Oh Bev, this was so beautiful!

And your story really touched me. I know what it's like to move 2 weeks before Christmas. We did the same, kinda similar but not as tough. Had to sell up (after divorce) and find new. I was lucky and found our TARDIS. Our only hardship was no heating as the central heating system was a baxi back boiler and unsafe on inspection the day after we moved in.

I cannot imagine the heartache you went through and the difficulties of finding somewhere to go. I am so glad you had a friend also who looked out for you.

My heart is always with the homeless because I know just how easily it could be any one of us.

Love be with you and your girls now. I hope life is treating you much kinder.

Beautiful singing!

Hi :-)

What a touching story you brought to us. It really moved me. Even when we have very little, we might still have a lot. Feeling at peace inside is as important as world peace. I guess it's all linked and intertwined.
Well done with your singing!

Very touching singing and harmony.
I was more impressed with your story.
Like the story of O Henry, it is a wonderful depiction of the truth of life.
It seemed like a Christmas miracle story like a “Christmas Carol”.
I listened to your song over and over while reading your story using Google Translate.
Thank you for sharing.
