The greatest gift of all


We watched the scorsese film about the Rolling Stones yesterday and there’s a bit in it where Keith Richards (referring to the miracle of his continued survival) says something along the lines of: “It’s great to be here, it’s great to be anywhere!”

I have enjoyed Christmas. I even enjoyed turning 50 just before. A milestone I might not have reached if things had been different. This time last year I was still having treatment. Now I’m feeling the benefit of nearly a year’s recovery time and yes, it’s really great to be here!

I have had some lovely presents from kind people but the greatest gift of all is life.

So thank you, people and providence, and a happy Christmas and new year to anyone reading this.
