No matter what your religion or culture, this time of year means children are home from school, many of us have real excuses to stay home from work, and celebrations seem to be everywhere. Shop windows shine with coloured, sparkling tinsel, Santa is out ringing bells, and gift giving flourishes along with fat turkeys, roast pork and baked potatoes. If we are fortunate then the wise owl wisdom of appreciating family and friends is adhered to, with joy.
These things are wonderful, but it is the opportunity to be together sharing a meal whether it be that traditional roast, or most likely lasagna in my case, that I love the most. When we eat and drink at the same table, we are gifting love. I hope wherever you are that your table is full, you have a hand to hold, and laughter and smiles surround you.
See you soon,
