Holiday greetings to one and all! I hope you're bearing up after another difficult and challenging year and taking steps to protect and care for yourself and those around you. If you're anything like me, you may feel like you've been on a lengthy emotional rollercoaster. When we first climbed in nearly two years ago, none of us knew where it was going or how long it would last. Few could have predicted the scope of the changes to come or the suffering so many would have to endure. What's clear now is that the ride's been extended into another amusement park altogether where much of the scenery is unfamiliar. Indeed, many aspects what we'd come to see as "normal" life seem to have been permanently altered. Such changes are difficult to accept, especially against a backdrop of increasing divisiveness and fear. But while change is inevitable, I firmly believe we can all have a say in determining the values we want to carry with us into the future. Surely the "holiday spirit" is something worth protecting — so let's remember the joys of previous holidays, celebrate the current ones and carry on!
