Christmas has come and gone. It's been a busy month. Every time I thought about posting, something always seemed to take priority. A lot of things went by the wayside, but my family had a joyful, quiet Christmas.
Like many of you, I'm looking forward to the new year. I have expectations of better things ahead. I'm not alone when I say, this has been a difficult year for us in finances, health, and the unexpected. It has also been a year of growth. I've had to make the best of every situation, sometimes finding new ways of looking at life. Some things were lost, some set aside, and some were restored. My faith has been strengthened through it all. Despite all the negative voices, I believe in a bright future! Sometimes it's nice to just turn off the TV, the radio, the noise, and spend some hopeful time in quiet contemplation.
I'm wishing you renewed faith, quiet moments, the love of family & friends, and a New Year filled with peace.
