Spending quality time with family.

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Getting to see relatives on leave from deployments and taskings with the military.

Of course, snow and skiing are great at this time of year. Seeing loved ones and time off work or other restful activities, like walks in the forests or parks in the brisk winter air. And now the idea of winning a gift. All of these are wonderful.


That said, I feel compassion for those that are shut-ins, have no loved ones (left), or worse, are on the streets, many not by their own choice but because of life circumstances or mental health issues, often simply falling through our societal cracks, left with no one to assist them. So remember these at this time (and all year round) and help out in a local community, soup kitchen, food bank, home visit services, and other like ministries and services to bring and share the joy with them.

I'm most looking forward to spending more time with my family. Being a student, I live really far away from home and don't get to connect with them as often as I'd like to. This year, in particular, has been a rough one, so I look forward to recouping with my family.


Also, building a snowman with my little brother ^ _ ^
