Over the past few months there has been so much heavy duty stuff on my Facebook feed and in my emails and twitter it was beginning to get me down but over the past few days I have seen happy messages and good news which seems to balance it out a bit. Then today I went into the grocery store for a couple of things including cedar boughs for decorating and between the smell of the cedar and the Christmas music I ended up buying stuff for Christmas stockings and found myself singing with the music. It would be so nice to have that light giving spirit upon us all the time.
The good news and messages included some I will share with you. This John Lewis ad was particularly wonderful.
Then there was Mog’s Christmas Calamity from Sainsbury.
Today I saw an announcement from my Prime Minister and it made my week for sure. Canada will be welcoming 25000 Syrian refugees. 10,000 of those in December and the remainder before the end of February. Once again I am proud to be Canadian.
Then to top it all off is this wonderful meeting of the old and new. Bing and Bowie.
Thursday marks the marketing beginning of the season and Sunday is the first day of Advent.
May all your wishes come true and may the messages of joy and good will continue to follow us through the season and into the new year.
