Hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and that it was all you hoped it would be.  At this time of year, we think about giving to family and friends, and realize how grateful we are for all that we have.  We think about others who are less fortunate and and open our generous hearts to many.

We reflect on this past year, and look forward to the new year with hope.  Think about it!  Each day, we wake up with another chance to do things better.  Looking forward to 2013, we have an opportunity to make things better for our families and for ourselves.

We’ve had many challenges these past few years, but we’re still here and we made it through.  We are all just doing the best we can.  Christmas gives us a chance of renewal.  Renewal of the spirit and the soul.  Maybe things are changing and people are more in their hearts than in their heads.  Time will tell.

Calvin Coolidge said “Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”

May you have and receive the “Spirit of Christmas”  throughout the coming year.
