Christmas blessings

Since it’s just four days to Christmas I’m quite sure you don’t want to be reading about ethical dilemmas or medical conundrums or even writerly angst, so I shall simply send a seasonal greeting.

It would be all too easy to simply write ‘Happy Christmas, everyone!‘ but I know that sadly this will not be a joyous time for many people. So …


If you are currently facing devastating loss or grief,
may you be given the strength and courage to go on.

If you are caught in a spiral of stress and anxiety,
may you find a way through which guides you to a safer, more peaceful place.

If life is currently good and you have all you need,
may these blessings continue, valued and treasured.

If you are fortunate enough to enjoy a super-abundance of health and wealth,
may you have the wisdom, compassion and generosity to share wisely.

If you are in a position of power,
may you have the humility and insight
to use it to influence others and effect change for the greater good.



‘Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.’
