Signing off…

We’re signing off for 2015 with this week’s #spreadingthegoodstuff post and wanted to take the opportunity to wish everyone a safe and happy festive season.

In a time when there’s little goods news to hold on to, particularly on a global scale, it’s important to focus on the good and always remember, that even in the most horrific of circumstances, there’s always someone helping and caring for those suffering. This is something we encourage our children to do if they see the ever-present images of war and destruction: “Look out for the people helping – there’s always someone helping.”

It’s with this advice we look upon the world at this time and take comfort in the fact there are always people willing to help those less fortunate and those who do not take for granted the annual sharing of (too many) gifts and an abundance of food with family and friends.

Yes, be merry, but remember to also be grateful and herald in the New Year with a promise to practise more peace, gratitude and forgiveness and spread a little love around – especially in our own backyards.

Because these are things we need this Christmas – wherever we are in this world – peace, love, thanks and forgiveness.

See you all in 2016,

Christy and Lee
