2021 – another chance to get it right

As we leave behind one of the most challenging years we’ve ever experienced, I wish all in our lovely group a happier, more peaceful and free-er 2021.

Raymond Briggs, the author of The Snowman has written a book called ‘Time for Lights Out’. I find his poem below to be a gentle reminder of what we have and why we have everything to be thankful for as we head into a new year. Tricky at times I know, but by staying positive when we can, we boost our immunity and keep the negativity at bay. I believe the words below can help.

Thank you for all your support through the decade and beyond. And as we stand on the edge of 2021 I wish you the very best of health, happiness and peace x

Night Thoughts

Thank God, or Someone,
I am not in pain.
As far as I know,
I am in good health.
There is no war.
Tonight, no bombers will come.
Tomorrow will bring no invader.
We are at peace.
The bed is comfortable.
I am warm.
The rain will fall on the roof.
Not on me.
The cold ground is far below.
The wind blows, the curtain stirs,
I do not feel it.
If frost comes, it will be outside.
Inside, the room is warm.
I am not hungry.
I am not thirsty.
There is no famine.
There is no drought.
I am not alone,
I can hear breathing.
I can see.
I can hear.
I can walk.
And I can sleep.
One day, one night,
Death will come,
but not just yet.
For the time being,
All is well.
