Season’s Greetings

Dec 28, 2018 | News

For the people we work with and their families, this is a very difficult time of the year. The media bombards us with images of families united around Christmas trees or a dinning room table embraced in a warm glow. Many strive to having this, but the reality is many parents will be sitting alone, apart from their loved ones. The cruelty of life is magnified on this day and is felt acutely. It may be the first year alone, or the memory of happier times and a life once lived. For others, the time with family can bring immense pressure to create something that is perfect or working, which in reality has not been for many months or even years. As mediators, we always ask clients to hold to the thought that the darkness will not last and with grace and forgiveness to let a new chapter start, which holds endless opportunities. Christians see the birth of Jesus as a new beginning, a new light in the world. We all have a light within us; it may be dim sometimes, but use this time over the holiday season to be kind to yourself and look positively towards 2019. We wish our clients, mediators and colleagues a very blessed Christmas and every happiness in the new year.
