If you pass my way....

Merry Christmas, happy holidays, seasons greetings, whatever you do or don't celebrate I'd like to take a moment to thank you all for reading my little blog, you have no idea how much it means to me!! And now for a bit of, well, a public service announcement I guess?!

Christmas can be such a wonderful time, but along with all the joy, can come great sadness for some people. It can be a harsh reminder of those we've lost, of things we don't have, or can't afford and can put a lot of pressure on individuals and families. So should you pass my way on Christmas Day (see, I'm a poet and I didn't know it!!) and find yourself not feeling tip top, then please know that you are not alone, you are loved and valued.

There is always somebody you can talk with.....
