Time has gone by so quickly this year. You know it’s that time of the year when some stores open for 24 hours until Christmas Eve. What will Santa bring us this year? Perhaps a toy truck, a Barbie doll, maybe a condo or two? It’s also the time to share with those who are less fortunate; to forgive and forget to start anew; to spend real time with family and friends. Quite often we gripe about the little things in life; however, we should embrace what we do have and count our blessings. Look at those in the war ravaged countries, the areas of famine and drought, places where citizens have no rights or freedoms. We are very lucky to be living in Canada as your birthplace or having the opportunity to move here. Things happen and we deal with it. Look beyond the blame game and see how best to move forward.
