Best wishes to all as we once more look forward to gathering to celebrate the season. Things may not be as stringent as last year but we are still dealing with issues that are disrupting our world. Wearing a mask, social distancing and vaccinations have become prevalent in our conversations. But we are starting to hug and touch and to gather. We are starting to find a new normal. And we will, in time.
To each season there is a reason and at this time we celebrate each other. We also look back on what has been and hopefully it is with pride that we have overcome difficulties with honour and with dignity. And as we move forward it is ever thus. I for one am holding onto the hope of better days and joyful times. I am an unrepentant optimist. Besides, I look much better when I smile then when I frown!
You all have lives that are rich and worthwhile. I know this because I call you friends. And I only ever pick the best friends! But not every day is a good day. I have had some issues this past year but they were simply bumps in the journey that is my life. I will never give in to negativity. There’s too much beauty in the world.
All the days to come will be wondrous if we believe.
