Hello again, and welcome back to FGF!
It’s amazing how quickly the week has gone by, and we are already well into January! How has your week gone? Feel free to share with us both the highs and the lows. Has anything happened that you feel has made a positive difference to your week, or if you are really struggling with something, that we may be able to help with? Remember this is your space, your place to air and share your thoughts, needs, to find empathy and to support each other.
Did you know that the Romans called this month after their god Janus, the God of Gateways? A friend reminded me recently of a famous poem by the British poet, Minnie Louise Haskins (1875-1957). King George VI quoted it in his Christmas broadcast in 1939 as Britain stood alone, on the brink of war and facing dark times ahead. It has spoken to me again recently, in facing some sad and difficult times as a family right now, and maybe this may encourage you if you are facing some dark times.
Stay strong! Take care,
With very best wishes.
