Well the big day is here, at least it’s a big day for many families. It’s the one day of the year we truly prepare for and in the blink of an eye it’s gone. However you are spending it today, take some time out to appreciate it. Switch off your phones (as I’m about to) and be truly present. Enjoy every moment.
But if you know someone who isn’t as lucky to have friends and family around them, a friend or a neighbour perhaps, why not give them a quick call before you turn that phone off and ask them to pop over later, or just wish them a very merry time of it. Take them a mince pie and a warm smile, because not everyone is as lucky as us. Whatever pressure we may feel to make this day special, some are not so lucky.
And what for us? Well I’m turning off the phone and I’m turning up the oven. I’m going to embrace a day of not working and spending the day with my brood – Small Boy, Hubs and Bear the cat. We’ll see a few relatives along the way too.
Have a wonderful day.
