As the sun sets on 2018 we look forward to 2019 and whatever new adventures may be on the horizon. It gives us a chance to change some things in our lives or have some new challenges, to grow as people and to learn new lessons. 2018 comes to a close as being a decent year with some painful lessons learned along the way. The year was coming to a very joyous ending during the festive period and then bang a few days after Christmas we received some very bad news, a close family member has cancer. We as a family are trying to remain positive because really it seems the only logical thing to do but I am sure 2019 has some difficult times ahead. Difficult times, however, make us appreciate the good times and this is a lesson I learned many years ago. I am always thankful when things are ticking along smoothly as I am very aware from life experience everything can change so quickly. But that is life, there is no immunity for any of us, good things and bad things are going to occur and we just have to be appreciative of the good times and resilient during the bad times, and eventually it all evens out (I like to hope so anyway!) I hope 2019 is a wonderful year for you. I will close with one of my favourite Irish proverbs 'May the best day of your past be the worst day of your future'.
With my Best Wishes,

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from Trusty Transcriptionists. The photo is of an ornament from my very non designer tree, an ornament that goes back to my childhood in the early 1970s (my tree has many of these old ornaments!) I know that this time of year can be bittersweet as we reflect upon and greatly miss all of the people that are no longer with us. I always feel a great sadness interspersed with very happy moments during this season and I am sure it is the same for many of you. I do try to remind myself of all of the positive things and be grateful for the gifts the year has given me such as good health and wonderful people in my life. It is also a perfect time of year to renew relationships, make amends and give to charity. Happily we can often have a great feeling of hope as we begin to anticipate the following year with a sense of optimism and renewed enthusiasm. I hope that whatever you are doing over the holidays that you have a wonderful time filled with happiness, good health and peace. I wish you all the best for the festive season.
With warmest wishes, Kim
