I had an enforced pause in Christmas Eve proceedings this morning when I arrived at the berry farm 30 minutes before it opened for sales.
As I waited I pondered the news stories I’d heard and read about the stress of Christmas.
Some were of people in dire circumstances which is a reminder to those who have more than enough to help those who haven’t.
Others were of people who have enough but have forgotten what Christmas is supposed to be about.
Whether or not you’re a Christian, what really matters is people and love and if you’ve got enough, remember you’re supposed to be enjoying Christmas.
I got the berries and now, at the other end of the day, I’m waiting for the pavlova to cook.
As I do I”m also looking forward to tomorrow with three generations of extended family and some waifs and strays who are far from home.
May you all have a blessed Christmas and may 2016 be kind to you and yours.
