From all of us at Limae, we hope you find peace and delight this Christmas. 2020, has brought it all, hasn’t it? It seems there are decades where nothing much happens at all. And then there are weeks when decades happen. COVID-19 bared its teeth and every area of our lives has changed and no part of us has been left untouched.
But regardless of such global and personal turbulence, we emerged from a crisis with some human qualities enhanced. And as we close the curtain on another chapter of our lives, it’s time to farewell a strange, yet eye-opening year with resilience and victory.
Because there is a joy that comes with our encounters with new experiences. And there is no greater joy than having an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 🎄
