A belated Happy New Year to all of you.
It has been sometime updating the blog. It has been a very busy and stressful few months for me, and I know it has been that for so many others. But the good news is that my middle daughter was able to have her wedding at long last. It had been cancelled twice due to Covid.
This terrible pandemic has taken its toll on so many. What have we learnt from this terrible ordeal? At first, we were all enthusiastic about combating it doing the right thing by staying away from the vulnerable. However, as time has gone by, we have become angry and despondent because there does not seem to be an end to it all.
The thing I have learnt is that family and friends are most important, we all had to stop and take stock. We race along at a 100 miles an hour fitting so much into our days we forget to say hello to those who are precious to us.
I have had news in the last month that for 2022 there are two new members of our family being born in June. How wonderful is that!
So, stop running begin to walk, stand, and pause. Talk to your nearest and dearest. Live in the moment stop predicting for yourself what might or might not happen.
We are all in What’s App groups talking to each other via the network. Why not arrange a date once a month to actually see the people and interact with them personally? What a radical thought!
Make 2022 a year of communication – talking and seeing those you love and care for – friends the family you choose – family not just the close ones but spread the net wider.
Let us spread the love to each other, because without that we have nothing!
