What is holiday all about? Family. It is not always possible to be with your loved ones over the Christmas season, but it is always great to be witness of cool family times.
This morning we had the Summer Series Duathlon – and it was great to see family participation and involvement – dad crossing the finish line with his young daughter in his arms, mom running the last 500m with her 9 year old daughter, grandfather supporting his son with a loud “come on dad, come on dad” as it is his privilege to have his new grandson on his hip – and in the photo a mom and grandmother helping their young athletes with running shoes and a dry tops in record time.
May you all have a blessed Christmas. We are also aware of sadness and loss in this time – may God’s peace be with you.
