Thought for the week: A true relationship is someone who accepts your past, supports your present, loves you and encourages your future.


Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the revolving year, and yet for all of that, when it speaks its voice has strong authority. May peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessings all year.
