The best gift

It’s Christmas Day in my little corner of the world and I feel very fortunate to have received some thoughtful gifts. My partner and I are staying with a member of their family; parents came to an enormous dinner and returned later for an indulgent tea. Amid this abundance, what I value most is the simplest thing.

Feeling comfortable, welcome and free to be myself.

How much warmer a world we could all have, if we set aside indulgence and extended more kindness to one another. Especially to those excluded from what’s too often taken for granted at Christmas.
