Christmas Cheer

As 2020 draws to a close who could have imagined what a year we would have all been through?

As we hope and pray for a vaccine, which can protect us from the Coronavirus, all who normally celebrate Christmas will need to enjoy it in a different way this year.

Compassion goes a long way in difficult times and this year I intend to spend some quiet time thinking about the millions of people across our precious planet who have lost family and friends this year.

It’s not the Christmas I imagined but I’m lucky to be able to enjoy the cut-down version with an elderly relative in my “support bubble” who will be enduring my “meals-on-wheels” Christmas lunch delivery!

I hope whatever you are doing that you are safe and not feeling lonely. If you are alone and you use Twitter, the #JoinIn hashtag is back this year – for its 10th year – for those needing some company.

Thank you so much to all JAW clients, new and old, who have supported me this year. I hope to see you again next year 🙂

I am posting the links below in case any are of interest or are needed.
