I'm always thankful when I see the first moments of light of a new day, and never more so than at the moment. The darkness of night is, as I'm sure many can testify, the toughest of times when met with challenges. While dad came through the operation on Wednesday night the road ahead is going to be a very long and I'm sure at times very difficult one.

As a family both immediate and extended we will stay strong and be there for both dad and of course mum, who as many of you know does not keep in the best health herself.

Your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time are very much appreciated.

A New Day
