So not only have I been given the gift of  bringing joy into people’s lives, ( oh yes, I know I can bring many other things that are not so lovely too) I get flowers as well! It seems like Christmas all over. I just have to say that having something you can share as a gift is a  wonderful thing, and we all have one. Sometimes we know what it is straight away, and sometimes it takes a little longer to find. We are all searching and in the end I think the seach for happiness is about what we can give to the world, our community. I  think I was late 30’s before I found what I had that I was supposed to share. That’s why we are all here, to share our gifts, to bake cakes, shine people’s cars, write books for people, do their sums, teach them songs, look after their  distressed children. We all have a gift, some are small and perfectly wrapped, some come in great big boxes with loads of stuffing, some come wrapped in an old bits of newspaper but inside  there are jewels so precious.

Everyone has a gift to share. Thanks for mine. Thanks for letting me share it.


last nights sharing session we sung ‘something stupid’ made famous by Nancy and Frank, and continued by Robbie and Nicole. This version owes all to the lovely basses in the Bishopsgate Singers…you rock!
