It seems to be a recurring story, but for so many of people I know, with the exception of a couple of high points, 2013 has been a year of sadness, and another one that most will be happy to see the back of.
Deaths, divorces, illness and redundancy have run a tread of sadness through the year. But as we know, the challenges in life are there to help us become stronger. And those of us who have met those challenges and grown as a result, are still here to greet the New Year.
Happy New Year everyone. I hope that 2014 will be a healthy, fortunate, positive and above all peaceful one for you all.
