Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my followers! Thank you so much for all your interest and support througout the year - it means a lot to me. May you have a peaceful, restful holiday, and if you haven`t already, may you, and I include myself in the midst of all the chaos, be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas. Not the beautifully decorated tree with the beautifully packaged gifts underneath, nor the jolly rolypoly Santa and his troop of reindeers, nor the golden turkey taking its centre stage at the table, nor the everextending waistline,....but the arrival of a baby called Jesus, the arrival of hope into a world that badly needs it. May we spread a little of that hope around to others and make the world a better place.
