In Quebec we are limited to 10 people gatherings and hence we have canceled the extended family Christmas gathering for yet another year. It's not the end of the world if we do our part in helping keep people out of hospital.Wherever you are you are most likely limited in some way as well and no doubt tired of this global pandemic and yet there are undeniable lessons which have come from it. I know it helped me in ways I had not imagined even as I bemoan the limitations it has imposed. If nothing else it has shown me the resilience of human beings as well as confirmed what I already knew about some of the more unsavory aspects.
In whatever way you mark this time of year I hope that it is reflective and peaceful and that whetever positive lessons you have drawn you apply going forward.
