Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah
The festive season approaches. Once again I have the happy opportunity to pay honour to whatever faith has meaning in your lives. May this season revive memories of past years, and stir hopes for those which lie ahead.
When I was little it seemed like an eternity from one year through the next. Now – the years fly by. Though I savour every day that passes, I can scarcely believe the Holy Season is almost here again.
What a glorious opportunity to sing the old carols, hear the ancient stories of our faiths, and give thanks for the multitude of life’s gifts — indeed, for life itself. Best wishes to all: family, friends, fellow residents and staff at our Manor, health professionals who ease our way, and the strangers who lend a hand when we need it.
The rough spots in life’s road are partnered with love, goodness and joy. I pray that we all find the strength to deal with the tough and to recognize and appreciate the good, as we head out into a new year.
