Let December not be a time for wallowing in what a bad year it has been, but in celebrating how toughness and perseverance can see you through even the darkest adversity. There are always pick-me-ups aside from alcohol!


This lovely stranger opened my mail by mistake and read it too – the pages were dog-eared. But the message of support at a time when all my fair-weather friends have fallen away was a much needed injection of happiness. The power of words is a beautiful thing 🌻
