Christmas 2015

As 2015 draws to a close and our Christmas celebration looms, I reflect on the year, our family and friends, our blessings and trials, adventures, travels, greetings and good byes - life runs at a pace, sometimes difficult to keep up with but nevertheless it is ours to deal with and live fully.

We read and hear about the atrocities, horrors and grave sadness in the world and wish these did not occur. We hear about huge numbers of homeless people desperately trying to make a better life for themselves and their families. People without shelter, food and water facing freezing conditions in the coming months in all corners of the world. Babies and small children suffering under incredible circumstances - coming into a world where hope and prosperity is questionable. 

Trying to make sense of why life works for some and not so for all fellow human beings is beyond rationale but not to question or even notice this is blind.

We can all play our small part wherever possible, to utilise each day, hour or minute to its fullest capacity is to show gratitude for the day we have.

Peace and love
