Something we forget in the run up to Christmas is that we already have so much. Our health, our friends, our family. I hope this doesn't sound too trite, but sometimes I feel we need to tune out the demands for toys and trinkets, tone down the garish lights and tinsel and have a quiet moment considering what we couldn't be without.
These photos are of a friend of over a decade and her daughter, both of them a blessing to me and each other. 'Tis the season to be grateful'.
