Christmas time can and will bring up a lot of practical, psychological and emotional issues which can be stressful in many ways.  It’s important that you reach out to someone if & when you feel that you are not coping with your situation.  There are people there to listen & help.  Please do contact them.

Wishing you all a very blessed, safe, joyful, Happy Christmas                    See you all in 2018
