Thought for today:
‘Christmas gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the important things around us – a time when we can look back on the year that has passed and prepare for the year ahead.’
— David Cameron

In looking for quotes that encapsulated Christmas, this seemed so appropriate.
And then I saw who said it.
And when (2012).
The year of the Queen’s Jubilee and the London Olympics.
Our spirits had not been so high for so many years.
We felt pride as a nation again.
How much has changed since those heady, far away days?
I write as Christmas is cancelled for most of the UK.
My youngest arrived home on Thursday and went back to Wales last night ahead of a national lockdown.
My eldest was due to travel on Tuesday and now can’t.
Up and down the UK we face Christmas apart, making the most of a painful situation.
So how to find anything positive to think about?
Continuing on from yesterday…
Day 2. Despite all you have experienced this year, can you think of one thing that happened to you that you are grateful for in 2020?
If you can and feel so minded, share here.
