Celebrate the little things in life.

We're coming to the end of an extraordinary year that has changed something in every single person's life somehow. We have seen so much sadness during this year but on the flip side, there is one thing we can all thank 2020 for and that's teaching us to slow down. Our social calendars have suddenly become empty and we have been brought home to nest.

It has brought families living together even closer together and many of us have brought out the dusty board games again as you can only watch so many movies. There has been time to talk, reminisce over old photos, go for walks with the children who had fallen out of love with walking with the family. Home baking and home cooking have peaked as has DIY jobs at home.

It has felt so special when we have been able to meet a friend and go for a walk, although we haven't been able to hug each other, just getting a smile from a dear friend has brought warmth to our hearts. Newborn babies meeting their grandparents through windows, relatives visiting an elderly family member at care homes and talking through screens, intimate weddings shared through video and neighbours helping each other out making sure there's a food shop dropped on the doorstep. These scarce human interactions have been special beyond belief.

For people living alone a smile from a neighbour or a friend through the window or a chat on the phone has been their lifeline. We had become so accustomed to just pinging a text message off and now we've gone back to picking up the phone and speaking to people, which means so much more to us. Communities have come together to help people who are shielding and those humble gestures of goodwill are priceless.

Christmas this year will be different. We will create lifelong memories of lovely, warm mulled wine shared whilst we're wrapped up in cosy knitwear and boots in the garden with fairy lights and baubels hanging off the trees, candles flickering in the wind and Christmas music playing in the background. We'll find a way of making this Christmas special by celebrating the little, but so very large things in life.

Remember, it's not what under the Christmas tree that counts but who around the Christmas tree.

“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible”

Dalai Lama
