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,
