Compliments of the season to you for 2012, and a happy, fruitful 2013 for you. It seems that a lot of us haven't had the best of years in 2012, but look at it this way.
We're here. We're lucky enough to have a device that reads what's on the screen before our eyes. We may be suffering in some ways, or be with someone who is, and who takes much of our loving care and effort. We may be people in the full flush of life. No matter what, we're here.
I hope you are able to be in contact with family and with those others who matter, over the next few days at least.
My wish for all for 2013 is for contentment and peace of mind, no matter what the year ahead has in store for us.
