In this season of celebration and merriment, taking the time to pause and reflect on the precious and sacred nature of life can be a gift we give ourselves.
Our interconnected world remains in the midst of a pandemic that has taken far too many lives much too early. Yet even in the face of the omicron variant we are making progress against this deadly virus. Many of us will be able to gather for a few days this season, something we took for granted until last year’s global health crisis shut down all but the most essential of travel. We have been able to hold friends and loved ones close more frequently in recent months, providing that essential human touch.
May this year’s season — in whatever way you celebrate — bring you happiness, help you treasure what is important in your life, and build hope for a future where love trumps hate.
Happy Christmas, and best wishes for 2022.
More to come…
