A New Year? Oh yes, please! For so many of us, 2020 has been the worst of times, filled with unmeasurable heartache and overwhelming difficulties. For some the loss is physical – be it home, income or a love one. For others it’s been emotionally devastating with demons lurking in the darkness. My heart aches for the whole of the world this New Year’s Eve. The sadness is so profoundly deep.
Yet despite it all, there is reason to rejoice. We have been given the opportunity of rediscovering simple things, a rekindling of family values, of faith and the importance of the people in our lives. Cling to the good that rises from the ashes of sorrow and the beauty that was born of despair. Whatever the past year has delivered, give thanks for it is that past road traveled that has brought us here, to the start of a New Year.
Remember the canvases of life is blank. The painting is ours to create. We celebrate each New Year because we believe in the hope of possibilities. Hope for the dreams yet to dream, talents yet to be discovered, laughter and joy yet to be felt. I wish is to remember the past, embrace the moment and hope for all the tomorrows yet to come.
Happy New Year!
